Shoppers will get the chance to get their Christmas card buying done early, and donate to a worthy charity, at the United Reformed Church schoolroom in Church Street.
Cards for Good Causes sells cards from temporary shops all over the country, donating at least 70p from every pound for every card sold to charities that participate.
A pop-up shop, which is run by volunteers, selling the cards will appear in the URC every Friday from 10am - 4pm, and on Saturdays from 9am - 1pm. It started today (Friday).
Terence Powley, a shop manager for Cards for Good Causes said: “Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes this festive season.
"Sales of the cards not only generate funds with which charities can make a real difference, but purchasing and sending them helps to raise awareness of the vital work that our charities do."
He urged interested shoppers to look out 'for the distinctive triangular red Santa sign' in Church Street.
In the last decade, more than £40 million has been given to charities by Cards for Good Causes.
