The pop-up shop offers people the chance to raise money for charity every time they send send a friend, relation or colleague a Christmas card.

Shoppers are able to choose from a range of national charities, including Age UK, Barnardos, the NSPCC and the Stroke Association, as well as local organisations, including Prospect Hospice and Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

Founded in 1988, Cards for Good Causes now operates over 300 pop-up shops every autumn and winter. At least 75p in every pound goes to the good cause nominated on the cards, and in the past five years, charities have benefited to the tune of more than £20 million.

The shop at St Peter's opened on Saturday, and will be selling cards, gift wrap and gifts until Christmas week.
