A pop-up Christmas card shop, which raises money for charity, is open for business in the Norfolk and Norwich Library until 31 October, after which it will move into The Forum.
Staffed by a team of local volunteers, the shop is part of a network of more than 300 temporary shops run by Cards for Good Causes, the UK's largest multi-charity Christmas card organisation, which supports the work of national and local charities including Break, East Anglian Air Ambulance and Hillside Animal Sanctuary.
The Norwich shop will also be selling three designs created by local artists Joe Mclean and Beverley Gene Coraldean.
Shop manager Helen Dingle said: 'The support for our Norwich shop is fantastic, both in terms of volunteers who help in the shop and all those who make a bee-line for it to purchase cards, calendars and stocking fillers.
'We are also very grateful to both Joe and Beverley for providing their designs for the shop this year – we're sure they'll be a big hit! Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes across the whole region this festive season.

'Sales of the cards not only generate funds with which the charities can make a real difference, but also purchasing and sending them helps raise awareness of the vital work these charities do.'
