The Christmas Card Shops are unique and Wilmslow based. Forty three years old this year,there are 6 market places for 50 or so charities, local and national, in Wilmslow , Macclesfield , Altrincham , Hale, Sale and Knutsford .
The Association has raised over £4.5m. 100% of the charities sales are returned to them. No one is paid.
Apart from the shops, we sell cards for many other charities on line.
A unique format.
Since 1988, East Cheshire Hospice has been providing exceptional care for adults suffering from life-limiting illnesses. We aim to put patients at the centre of everything we do, whilst supporting their families and carers, whose needs whilst different can be significant.
With an integrated workforce of 140 staff and 600 volunteers, East Cheshire Hospice is based in Macclesfield and cares for a 200,000 strong community. It covers an area of approximately 400 sq miles including Buxton, Congleton, High Legh, High Peak, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton, Wilmslow and everywhere in between.
Our 15 bed In-patient Unit never closes. Patients can stay for end of life care, rehabilitation and symptom control. We also have a busy outpatient and day hospice facility, the Sunflower Centre.
Being a charity means that East Cheshire Hospice must find over 80% of its running costs from voluntary donations as all of it services are free of charge.
