Charity cards launched with support of local businesses
The money from the cards will help change the lives of young Ugandans this Christmas.
A BARNSTAPLE charity has launched a selection of Christmas cards which will help to change the lives of young Ugandans.
With generous donations from local businesses, more than 90 per cent of the money raised will go straight back into the charity’s projects in Uganda.
Director Phil Pugsley said: “The cards are being sold in Fair’s Fair, Driftwood Coffee Shop and Boston Tea Party in Barnstaple.
“We were very lucky that Toptown Printers printed the cards for us and Just Office donated the envelopes for free, so we have had a lot of local support.
