Community Cards coordinator Nigel Clews said ‘The project has been so overwhelmed with donations of cards since Christmas we decided to hold ‘The Great BIG Card Sorting Day’.  Held at Newsome South Methodist Church on Tuesday 21st Feb, it proved to be a fantastic idea with 19 volunteers giving up hours of time to sort the mountain of cards.  Ellie Pearson, the new Welcome Centre manager was invited to join the activities and was delighted to be presented with a cheque for £2000 by trustee Lynn and Sue, one of our tremendous volunteers.  The total now given has passed £10,000 following very successful card sales in the 2016 Christmas period.  We want to thank all those who donate cards, volunteer in our groups and those who regularly buy Community Cards.’sorting day 2017
