A Christmas card shop raising money for good causes has opened in Thame.

The store at Christchurch, Upper High Street, was opened by Councillor Mary Stiles and will sell cards and gifts to help four charities from the area and 30 national causes.

Thame Community Hospital, Florence Nightingale Hospice, Scanappeal and Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance have been chosen as the local charities to support.

Charities receive at least 70p from every pound raised by the store.

Opening the store, Ms Stiles said: “I am a long term resident of Thame and admire all the voluntary work done by members of Christchurch in and for our community and for the past seven years, like many of the residents of Thame and the surrounding villages, I have been grateful to the volunteers here for the card shop, which provides a one stop shop to buy our Christmas cards in aid of charities and good causes.

“It gives me great pleasure to declare open this year’s Cards for Good Causes charity card shop.”

The shop will be open 10am to 4pm, six days a week until December 3.
