Charity Urges Public to “Give Christmas Cards the Sack”

A UK charity is urging people to save paper, time and money this Christmas by taking part in a poster initiative.

St Richard’s Hospice is ‘giving Christmas cards the sack’ and asking residents to send their seasons greetings in a more eco friendly way, which will also benefit the charity.

The new scheme will see large Christmas card posters put up in schools, offices and clubs where people can write a message to their colleagues instead of sending Christmas cards. Last year more than 100 firms signed up for the scheme and raised a total of £4,500.

Fundraising assistant Joanna Street said: “This is a great way to save paper, time and money by writing your seasonal messages to friends and colleagues on one of our giant Christmas card posters.

“Also, if you make a donation to the hospice your money will help us care for patients and their families in Worcestershire.”
