Museum Has Charity Christmas Cards For Sale

Corinium Museum staff in Cirencester have been feeling festive with the launch of their Charity Christmas card stand this month.

The Cards for Good Causes stand was set up in the Museumís shop on Monday October 20th, selling a wide range of cards to raise funds for good causes and charities this Christmas.

Charities benefiting from the card stall include Diabetes UK, Barnardoís, the British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer, Save the Children and the RNIB. The packs of cards cost from £2.49 to £4.99 and all charities receive at least 79p in every £1 from the sales.

The Cards for Good Causes Charity stand will be in place in the Corinium Museumís shop from now until Thursday December 18th but come early to avoid missing out on the cards for the Charity you wish to support.

Cards for Good Causes is a not-for-profit organisation, which operates more than 350 shops in churches, libraries, museums and community venues across the country during the festive period.

The Corinium Museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on a Sunday from 2pm to 5pm. Anyone wanting further information on the Museum should contact the venue on 01285 655611 or email them at
