Brighton Cards For Good Causes November 2010
University of Brighton students and St. Luke’s Primary School Pupils joined forces to raise some early festive spirit. At 12.30pm on the 5 November, the pupils sang Christmas carols for the public and raised awareness for the Cards for Good Causes shop in St. Paul’s Church on West Street. Cards for Good Causes raises money for various causes including the Friends of Brighton and Hove Hospitals, Martlets, the Sussex Beacon, Cancer Research UK and thirty-one other charities. The school is involved with the multi-charity card shop in many other ways, two of the current school governors, a former governor, two parents and a former pupil at the school are volunteering in the shop.
Promoting the event was 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. The students have organised a free raffle and have managed to secure fabulous prizes donated by local retailers. They also have implemented online marketing to raise awareness for the cause and shop.
