Christmas Cards

Each year a new card is painted by Rotarian Randle Oliver. These are sold to friends as well as other Rotary club members to raise funds for Rotary Foundation and other charities, including our own Benevolent Fund.

A collage of the seven cards we have on offer for sale in 2020.

We are only able to sell via the website and personal contacts this year, but regret that we cannot visit clubs as this is something that our members have enjoyed each year.
