It has not just been members who have benefitted from Cardgains’ 30th birthday as Sue Ryder, the buying group’s charity of the year for 2019 was also a winner as the annual charity challenge – the ‘Almscliffe Anniversary Amble’ – raised £16,000.

As Chris Dyson, joint md of Cardgains told PG Buzz:“It’s been another challenging retailing year, but it was great to see so many suppliers and members getting involved with our celebrations.  It’s now all about next year as our theme moves to 2020 Vision”.
