This year, greeting card publishers Heyyy Cards will be collaborating with independent retailer Jo McBeath from Chirpy in Chapel Allerton to celebrate Thinking of You Week with an event in store on Saturday 23rd September, offering a personalised card printing service alongside a charity raffle, cake sale and other fun filled activities with proceeds being donated to Breast Cancer Now.

Dan and Yvette Clarkson, owners of Heyyy had this to say about TOYW 2023 “We are absolutely delighted to be working with a fabulous independent retailer again this year to bring our personalised card printing service to store in celebration of Thinking of You Week. Sending cards is such a personal and creative way to show loved ones that you are thinking of them and being able to donate proceeds of the card sales to such a valued charity makes the event even more rewarding. We first met Jo at this year’s PG Live tradeshow, where she complimented our new sign language cards. When Jo asked if we would be willing to offer a personalised service on this range for TOYW we thought this was a brilliant idea! We will be giving customers the opportunity to order a card with the name of a loved one or friend in ASL, in a choice of 4 colours, printed on the day in store. What better way to show someone you are thinking of them?!”

Jo McBeath, owner of Chirpy is excited to be involved in TOYW for the first time this year and explained a little bit about what the event means for Chirpy and about the charity that she has chosen to donate proceeds of the day’s activities to:

“Cards are the backbone of Chirpy and our customers love the great ranges we always have in stock, returning regularly to stock up for all occasions. Heyyy cards have been a great addition to Chirpy and we particularly love the Two Finger Salute range, which we thought would be perfect Thinking of You Week.  As I previously had Breast Cancer myself every year we raise money for Breast Cancer Now so this seemed the perfect opportunity to link the two. We’re so grateful to some wonderful local artists, makers & businesses who have donated some great prizes and hope to raise lots of money for this worthwhile charity. We’ll be celebrating Thinking of You week all week with in store and online offers and can’t wait to end the week welcoming Heyyy cards for what promises to be a great event”.
