Getting customers sending cards and giving back to the community are the aims behind award-winning Stationery Supplies owner Sarah Laker’s Thinking Of You Week collaboration with Lucilla Lavender.

A range of carefully-curated greeting cards from the publisher will be available for sale in Stationery Supplies’ two stores in Marple and Wilmslow during this year’s GCA-instigated event, which runs over 18-24 September, and profits will go to local dementia groups.

“Thinking Of You Week is an important part of my year,” Sarah told PG Buzz, “when we remind customers of the importance of sending cards and the positive impact they make on people’s lives.

“With this in mind I wanted to raise money to support the wonderful work that the local dementia groups do – so we’ll be donating £2 from the sale of every card from this gorgeous selection.”

Lucilla Lavender, co-owner of the eponymous publisher, commented: “We’re delighted to support this wonderful initiative from Sarah and Stationery Supplies. This special selection of Lucilla Lavender designs comes from some of our best-loved collections and epitomises the TOYW ethos – send a card deliver a smile.

“We’re very pleased to be able to donate them to this worthy cause and help support the great local work done to help those living with dementia.”

Sarah explained she has also been lucky enough to receive sample packs of Pilot Pen’s Boittle-2-Pen (B2P) eco pen – made from 83% recycled bottles – so everyone buying one of the special Lucilla Lavender cards will also receive a free pen that they can use to write their cards.
