Christmas is a vital time of year for charities – it’s the time when many people are feeling generous and want to give, so having a variety of opportunities for your supporters is vital.

Christmas cards is one area where charities can really have an impact. The charity Christmas card market is huge – even in these digital times – and having a great selection of cards with a good profit margin is a brilliant way to raise money and get your name out to all your supporters’ friends and families.

In order to help charities make the very most of their Christmas card offer, we are delighted to be holding a free event providing advice and support on all aspects of Christmas trading.

Whether you have an already established Christmas card operation or have never tried them before, our event will have something for you. We will run a workshop on all elements of a successful Christmas card campaign – including choosing a range, setting prices, selling via shops, catalogues and online – and much more besides.

There will be a free lunch provided by an amazing local caterer, CatchaCarrot and in the afternoon you can browse the new card range from the main supplier to the charity sector, Elle Media and speak to their representative who will be attending the whole day. Elle are also kindly sponsoring the event, ensuring it is free to everyone who wishes to attend.

The Consultancy will also be offering free 1-1 sessions with Vicki to talk about any aspect of your retail or trading activities. There will also of course, be lots of opportunity to network with your fellow charity workers.

All in all, we think it’s going to be a great event and we’d love to see you there.
