A Cards for Good Causes shop is open in Newton Stewart offering Diabetes UK Christmas cards for sale.

At least 70p of every pound spent on cards in the shops will be given directly to the charity.

The shop at the Tourist Information Centre, Dashwood Square in Newton Stewart, is open Monday to Saturday until 14 December between 10am and 4pm.

Linda Hamilton, Regional Fundraiser at Diabetes UK, said: “If you want to support a charity by buying Christmas cards, buying direct is the best option. After administrative costs there are no hidden charges so all the money goes to the charity and Diabetes UK gets the most benefit from your purchase.

“Money you raise will help us to fund vital research into diabetes, campaign on key issues, and support even more of the four and a half million people in the UK who are living with the condition.
