A Christmas card leaflet, featuring many local views, is being sent to businesses to tempt them into purchasing the cards. A mail order option is also available for people wishing to purchase the cards.
A Christmas Light Up a Life appeal, which invites people to sponsor a light on a Christmas tree in honour of someone, is also being run. There is an option to hang a gold card candle or star on a tree, which carries a message on the back. Facilities are also available for Christmas events, including parties.
