Huge range of cards at YMCA charity card shop
For the last 20 years, the YMCA on St Mary's Road, just south of Ealing Green, has run a Charity Christmas Card shop. You can choose from a whole range of styles of cards from 35 different charities, and it's a far cry from robins in the snow and Victorian villages (though the odd robin does get through).

Oh, and you can get a cup of coffee in the cafe too.
The shop opens from now until Tuesday 20th December.
Mon - Sat 10 am - 5.30 pm and
Suns 20th Nov, 27th Nov, 4th, 11th and 18th Dec 12.00 - 4.00 pm.
