RYE’S multi-charity Christmas cards shop has opened in the Community Centre on Conduit Hill.

Shop Manager Jane Taylor says: “This year you’ll find cards from even more charities, including three additional local groups: The Oliver Curd Trust, The Music Well and Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust.

“They join The Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust (RMHCT) - our biggest seller last year - St Michael’s Hospice and the Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.

“These groups rely largely on sales to people who know about their work, so we really need the support of locals.

“The shop is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am - 4pm and is staffed entirely by volunteers from the town and the surrounding villages. We hope to see you there.”
