With 75% of all proceeds going to local and national charities involved, Cards for Good Causes is a fantastic place to purchase Christmas cards. Inside the store there is the chance to win some fantastic prizes in the free raffle. The students have managed to secure fabulous prizes, including donations from; Harvey’s Best Bitter polypin keg voucher, Coffee Republic (Brighton) lunch voucher, an authentic and autographed sketch of Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs by director Graham Ralph, two tickets to the Cinderella Pantomime (Eastbourne) and more.

Promoting the store are Clare Pascoe-Price, Vanessa Whiteside, Charlotte Barrett, Lauren Fry and Vicky Cooper who are final year retail marketing students at the University of Brighton. They are volunteering for Cards for Good Causes and responsible for all aspects of marketing for the shop as an integral part of their module studies.
