Tony Cottee Returns to Phoenix!

Michelle was joined by West Ham legend and Sky Sports pundit Tony Cottee along with Diane Jarrett to talk about his involvement in another year of ‘Card For Good Causes’ at the Brentwood Library

The history? In 1959, James “Jim” Jackson, Secretary of the British Diabetic Association, gathered a group of medical charities together to discuss the coordination of publicity for selling charity cards at Christmas. In 1964, they began selling cards from empty shops in town centres. The name “Cards for Good Causes” was first mooted in 1971, but it was not until 1988 that it was formally established as the trading arm of The 1959 Group of Charities, and they are now the UK’s largest multi-charity Christmas card organization with the most shops in the country.

Cards for Good Causes (CFGC) pays the participating charities (or their trading subsidiaries) at least 75p in every pound from their card sales, less the VAT and they sell cards on behalf of more than 320 national and local charities. In most shops at least 25 charities are represented.

Tony spoke about how he got involved in Cards for Good Cause, sport punditry and was asked the question “do you ever think their will be mixed gender teams in top flight football?”
