The launch of Sweet Opportunity: Guy WalshDistributes the first of his charity cards to businesses and organisations around Brighton. Sweet Opportunity is entirely not-for-profit and supports local charities by selling greetings cards within local businesses. An honesty-box system is used whereby customers pay £1 for a high-quality greetings card. 20 pence from each pound is distributed equally between four local charities, and a further 5 pence is distributed to the charity selected by the hosting company. The rest of the money is reinvested back into Sweet Opportunity to create work experience opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities. Any businesses wishing to host a box in their reception, kitchen or staff room should contact Guy Walsh through the websitehttp://www.sweetopportunity.co.uk/
