Card Connection Makes a Difference by Raising Cash for Charity

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor,Card Connection has today announced that its staff have been raising cash for charity and plan to raise further funds throughout the year. The company voted on four charities to support and has organised a calendar of events aimed at having fun and generating cash at the same time.

Jackie Wheeler, technology & business intelligence manager at Card Connection and coordinator of the initiative comments: “We kicked off with around 20 of our head-office staff dressing as their favourite childhood hero to help raise £120 for Children in Need. Our heroes included Dangermouse, Robin Hood, Scott & Charlene, a Squaddie, a Fireman, a Pink Lady, a Builder and Nancy Drew! We also sold cakes, got in touch with our creative side by taking part in “Design Your Own Card” and had a Wii Bowling competition. This month we have supported the British Heart Foundation’s ‘wear it red’ campaign and plan a Stand Up To Cancer event in May, plus a McMillan coffee morning later this year.”

“As a company, our tag line is: ‘we make a difference’. Although this applies to the world of business, over the years we have also been pleased to support various charities,” confirms Michael Johnson, managing director of Card Connection. “Now, coordinating the effort so that everyone can be involved is generating so much enthusiasm! It’s a great way of our Card Connection ‘family’ to have fun and give something back at the same time.”

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of American Greetings Inc., one of the largest greeting card publishers in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees that are keen to run an expanding business. Since the franchise network in the UK is complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already-established territory from an existing franchisee. These vary in price according to their level of development, but start at £7k + Stock + Card Connection fee with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.

Territories currently available include: Plymouth, Reading, Bournemouth, Oxford, Bath, Northampton, Coventry, Leicester, Liverpool, Ayr, Scottish Borders/Edinburgh, Motherwell and South West Ireland. For further information about franchises for sale, please fill out the form below.
