Local Designer Illustrates the Gift of Giving for Local Children’s Charity

Charlie House receives support from local designer in the form of the creation of a bespoke Christmas card range  to raise money for its continued operations.       

Local designer  Claire Hamilton of Adelpha  Design has designed the range which features three different  festive  images – a cosy penguin, modern Christmas tree and stylised reindeer. 

Susan Crighton,  director of fundraising at Charlie House,  says, “We launched our own Christmas card range for Charlie House last year which Claire also kindly supported us with and they were a huge hit. She has excelled herself again this year with very different designs which will appeal to all. The purchase of ourcards offers the perfect way to not only send festive wishes to your family and friends,but alsotosupport Charlie House at the same time. Buying just two packs of our cards will actually fund one space for a child at one of our activity clubs.”  

Susan concludes,“The funds raised by the sales of our  cards  will go to supporting the on-going activities and support  network Charlie House provides to families in the North-east of Scotland. We rely heavily on fundraising to enable us to offer services to our families such as our annual family short breaks which are invaluable as they enable the entire family network to participate in the same activities, have fun and most importantly, make wonderful memories.”  

Claire Hamilton of Adelpha Design,  and designer of the card range, says, “I was delighted to support Charlie House in the design of the Christmas card range again this year. It is great fun thinking of creative ways to illustrate the cards. I worked closely with the team to come up with the fun and festive designs this year and hope people enjoy receiving the cards in the knowledge that the sales of these are also supporting a local charity.” 

Charlie House Christmas cards are available at £5 for a pack of 12, including envelopes. 

To purchase   the cards,call 01224 313333, email  info@charliehouse.org.ukor drop in to the charity office located at 38 Albyn Place.
