MP gets an early taste of Christmas in Altrincham

Altrincham and Sale West MP Graham Brady got into the Christmas spirit as he gave a boost to volunteers running the charity Christmas card shop at Altrincham Library.

The Christmas card shop in local libraries is now in its 46th year. Over £5 million has been raised for charity.

The Altrincham shop is open this year from Saturday 11 November to Saturday 2 December.

Graham Brady met some of the volunteers and bought a selection of cards. Graham said:

‘This is a brilliant initiative; we all need Christmas cards and visiting Altrincham, Hale or Sale Library to buy them means that some excellent charities will benefit. The generosity of the volunteers means that all proceeds go to good causes.’


The Altrincham shop will be open during the Library’s normal opening hours: 10 am to 5 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, 10 am to 7 pm on Wednesday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday.

Christmas card shops will also be in Hale Library 13th Nov – 9th Dec and Sale Library 4th Nov – 25th Nov.
