A POPULAR and long-standing feature of the build-up to Christmas in Helensburgh is set to return this weekend.

The town’s annual charity Christmas card sale, giving a festive boost to a host of local good causes, had to be put on hold in both 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic.

But the event will return this Saturday, November 5, to the United Reformed Church in West Princes Street.

Among the local charities who will have Christmas cards on sale at Saturday’s event are the RNLI, the Gareloch Riding for the Disabled Association, Marie Curie, Save the Children, the Friends of Geilston and Phoenix International.

Saturday's event runs from 10am to 1pm and admission is free.
