We are supporting local charities with sale of unique Christmas cards available from Angela Ellis 01547 540504


As Christmas approaches far too rapidly, the Rotary Club of Knighton and District has produced a collection of six charity Christmas cards to raise money to support local groups that help their local communities.
These unique cards are based on the artworks of the talented artist Jane Wells of Leintwardine and have been modified by Rotary member Angela Ellis. As Angela said today “I approached Jane, a well-known and respected local artist, and asked her if we could use her original artwork and amend it slightly to make the images topical. Amazingly she agreed, and I have added a facemask to each of her amusing artworks.”
Rotary President Margaret Thorp added “We are proud to be offering these unique Christmas cards to raise money for the charities we support in our local communities. We are also delighted and appreciative of Jane Wells who has so generously offered her art for this charitable cause”
These striking Christmas cards are available from Angela Ellis by phoning 01547 540504 or emailing her on Each card has a greeting inside that says “Seasons Greetings, Christmas 2020, Stay Safe” A pack of 6 cards, 4inch by 6inch, of two different designs with envelopes is £3.50 or 3 packs (which will provide all six designs) for £10. Postage costs will be calculated by weight. Payment can be by BACS transfer to the Knighton Rotary charity account or in cash if collected.
