**UPDATE APRIL 2018**

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated their old Christmas and birthday cards to Age UK K&C; we are exremely grateful.

We're really sorry we haven't been able to individually thank everyone who has sent their old cards to us. Since being featured on the websites  of Country Living, Prima and House Beautiful, we have gone somewhat viral and been overwhelmed by people's kindness. We have received cards from all across the world, even from places far as Texas and Dubai!

Our Card Project volunteers now have more than enough donated cards to keep them busy for at least the next year (or two!) and so for this reason we have to ask that you please do not send us any more cards. We are based in a small office with limited storage space, and so we sadly no longer have anywhere to keep them. Thank you very much for thinking of us, and we hope that you'll check back in the future when we re-open our appeal for cards.

If you would still like to support our Card Project, please consider making a donation instead. Just £7 will provide us with the card, glue and other materials needed to make and post out 500 cards to isolated older people who may not receive any other cards on their birthday.

Thank you very much for your support.


**UPDATE JANUARY 2018**

We are delighted to say that we have now received enough second hand cards to last our volunteers a whole year! Thank you so much to everyone who has kindly sent them to us; we are extremely grateful.

As our office is only small, we have to ask that you please do not send any more cards to us for the time being. However we thank you very much for thinking of us.
