What better way to spread that festive feeling than with a beautifully designed set of Christmas cards?
Our charities have each produced a set of thoughtful cards that are sure to put a smile on your loved one’s face. Better yet, you can be safe in the knowledge that your purchase will help someone else this Christmas and spread that joy even further.
First on the list is (Christmas drum roll please) the Great Western Air Ambulance.
St Catherine’s care for patients and families affected by life-shortening conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure across Chorley, Preston and South Ribble.
Traditional Christmas scenes fill the front covers of St Catherine’s Christmas cards. A snowman wrapped warm stands in a field filled with woodland creatures reminding you of childhood memories, or you can find a lone Christmas tree bright for all to see.
This is a charity that focuses on caring for others. Whether you need symptom control, end of life care or complementary therapies, you will be coming to a positive environment with professionals who support your individual needs.
They also offer a twenty-four hour helpline with a qualified nurse or doctor to answer any of your palliative care queries.
Wales Air Ambulance is ready to save lives with A&E services delivered straight to the patient. On-board critical care consultants and practitioners provide advanced care before a patient even reaches the hospital.
The WAAC rely on the support of the people of Wales to raise £6.5 million every year. This keeps the helicopters in the air and allows the charity to save the lives of people in Wales.
For one hundred and forty years, The Children’s Society has worked to transform the hopes and happiness of young people facing abuse, exploitation and neglect. They support children through their most serious life challenges and campaign for the social changes that will improve the lives of those who need hope most.

Demelza has provided care to terminally ill children and young people since 1998. It is through the generosity of others that they can continue to be there for young people and their families for years to come.
Founded in 1989, Springhill Hospice is a sixteen bedded purpose-built facility offering specialist palliative care.
Springhill receives support from the people of Rochdale and the surrounding areas, but to keep their doors open they also rely on the generosity of donators and supporters. In total, they need to raise £7,500 per day.
St David’s Hospice is a local charity, caring for local people twenty-four hours a day, three-hundred and sixty-five days a year. It delivers specialist care to adults with advanced illnesses or who those who need end of life care.
Over £4 million each year is needed to deliver patient care, bereavement and counselling services, as well as symptom control, respite and end of life care – that is over £9,000 a day.
The majority comes from community fundraising, but St David’s does not charge its patients, families or carers because its services are free to all.
Buying just one set of cards from your local charity this year will go a long way to helping someone who needs it most. Most importantly, it will help to spread some much needed joy to a loved one who may have been isolated this year.
