Celebrate our first Christmas with a charity Christmas card

This Christmas boaters, nature lovers, dog walkers and other canal enthusiasts can help support the work the Canal & River Trust by choosing their festive cards from a range that jointly supports the work of the Trust and the Inland Waterways Association.

The cards come in packs of ten and there are eight designs to choose from. They can be purchased from pop up shops in Skipton and Beaconsfield or can be purchased online with free post and packaging from www.chandlery-online.co.uk.

All proceeds from the cards will be split equally between the Canal & River Trust and Inland Waterways Association.

Ruth Ruderham, head of fundraising at the Trust, comments: “It is exciting to be able to offer the Trust’s first Christmas cards and to help raise money for the sort of essential canal maintenance and restoration that is in full swing during the winter months.

“In our first year selling cards, stock is limited because it’s difficult to gauge how popular the cards will be. If you would like some, get your order in quick so you don’t miss out. If they sell out really quickly we may be able to order more stock before Christmas.”
