Supporting Mencap…


Tis (almost) the season to be jolly!

Christmas cards, do you still send them diligently each year?  I think we all try to reduce and limit the amount of paper wastage as we move towards an ever increasingly paperless society and rightly so.

We’re approaching the time of year when Christmas cards drop onto our mat and brighten our day.  More than ever, however, people are announcing that they have opted to donate to charity instead of sending cards.

We believe that a Christmas card can say so much more than Merry Christmas.  It says, I’m thinking of you particularly at this time of year.  It’s a lovely gesture from a loved one who we don’t see very often or simply a joyous little delivery at a special time.

How can we still support charity while not completely stopping the tradition of sending Christmas cards?

Buy your Christmas cards from a charitable organisation such as Mencap!

Not only will you be supporting the charity but you’ll also be spreading word of their work to everyone that you send cards to.

We support Mencap. Who are Mencap?
