Cards for Good Causes fails to find Worthing venue for Christmas 2020 – but alternatives are available

Cards for Good Causes is urging Worthing residents to consider using its charity Christmas cards this year, even though the popular pop-up shop in the town centre will not be able to open as usual.

Every year, at the end of November, the company sets up shop in Worthing, offering a range of charity Christmas cards and other seasonal items.

Chris Robinson, Worthing manager, said: “Unfortunately, this year we are unable to open a charity Christmas pop-up branch in Worthing due to the lack of a suitable venue, in addition to staffing issues in this Covid environment.

“We look forward to seeing everyone in Worthing again next year.”

Cards for Good Causes is selling cards through local libraries at Rustington, Steyning and Storrington.
