Society Cards donates 40 pence from each pack of cards sold and 60 pence from each Bargain box to help support those in need in the rural community. The fund is divided equally between the five charities shown below. If you wish to give an additional voluntary donation to a particular one of these charities please call us with your order and let the member of our team know- just give them the name of your chosen charity from the list below, and how much you would like to donate.
