A charity Christmas card shop has opened for festive shoppers in Ipswich town centre.

The ribbon was cut by mayor Roger Fern in the tourist information centre on Friday.

The Cards for Good Causes pop-up is run by volunteers and supports more than 250 charities. Manager Sandra Cook said: “Sales of the cards not only generate funds with which the charities can make a real difference, but also purchasing and sending them helps raise awareness of the vital work these charities do.”
