A volunteer-staffed shop in Exmouth is marking 25 years of raising money for charity at Christmas.

Cards for Good Causes, which is staffed by volunteers, sells Christmas cards for more than 30 different national and local charities.

Since opening its first Exmouth branch in the Church Institute in Rolle Street, the shop has journeyed via Glenorchy Church, in Exeter Road, and the Glenorchy Hall, in Salterton Road, to its current home at Tower Street Methodist Church.

Thanks to continuing support in the town, the shop has gone from strength to strength, and is now said to be an important part of the Cards for Good Causes national network.

This year, the shop will be opening Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 4pm, until December 16.
