Shop manager Janice Fox, said: “Every year we have a winter-themed painting of a Saffron Walden landmark which is turned into a charity Christmas card. This year, we sold out of the cards in one day. I have got four more boxes in stock now, so there are plenty of Saffron Walden cards to sell.
A pack of 10 Saffron Walden Christmas cards costs £3.95, enough to pay for one hour of the charity’s 24 hour advice line, which provides critical support and assistance to people in need of immediate advice.
