An easy way to support Diabetes UK

Shirley Quinn, Senior eCommerce and Trading Executive at Diabetes UK, said: “There is a huge range of cards available this year whatever your tastes, and buying cards is an easy way to support Diabetes UK this Christmas.

“If you want to support a charity by buying Christmas cards, buying direct is the best option. After administrative costs there are no hidden charges so all the money goes to the charity and Diabetes UK gets the most benefit from your purchase.  

“Money you raise will help us to fund vital research into diabetes, campaign on key issues, and support even more of the four and a half million people in the UK who are living with the condition.

“If you buy your charity cards from commercial shops, do check what percentage they will be passing on to the charity.”

Jeremy Lune, Chief Executive of Cards for Good Causes, said: “Cards for Good Causes is a fantastic way to support a charity while spreading some cheer. Drop in to see our keen volunteers and pick up some cards for your loved ones this Christmas.”
