A CHRISTMAS card shop at Daventry District Council (DDC) is helping raise funds for a host of charities.

The shop is based at the council’s offices on Lodge Road.

Maria Taylor, community manager at DDC, said: “We have a wide range of charity Christmas cards on sale in the reception area and are very happy to be supporting such worthy causes.

“There are a large number of charities that people can help including Cancer Research UK, Save The Children and Age UK.

“The council is paid a commission of 10 per cent for selling the cards, the total of which we will be donating to the chairman’s choice of charity which this year is Help For Heroes.”
