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.

“It means we can put the money straight back into changing the lives of the young people we work with in Uganda.”

Amigos sponsors children in Uganda through education and runs Kira Farm Training Centre which teaches valuable vocational and life skills and sustainable farming.
