Manx Blind Welfare Society has launched its new Christmas cards and Isle of Man-inspired calendar for 2018.

There’s a choice of two stunning wintry scenes on the Christmas cards; snow over Cregneash village and a robin in Bradda Glen, and both images have been kindly donated by photographer Mary Davies.

The calendar also features some fabulous photographs of the Isle of Man, all taken by local photographers, who were invited to send in their favourite shot of the Island’s natural landscape.

Manx Blind Welfare Society Volunteers Coordinator and Events Organiser Debbie Thomson said: ‘We are delighted with our cards and calendars; the striking images really do showcase the Island’s natural beauty.

‘We are so grateful to all the talented calendar photographers for supporting us again this year. We have received a lot of interest so far, and I am certain they will fly off the shelves,
raising important funds to help us continue our work providing services and support for blind and visually impaired people in the Isle of Man.’

Isle of Man Advertising & PR has sponsored the printing of this year’s Christmas cards, meaning every penny raised will go directly to the charity and the important work they do.

Helen Summerscales, Managing Director at Isle of Man Advertising & PR, said: ‘It’s a real pleasure to be supporting our friends at Manx Blind Welfare over the festive period. We have our MBWS Manx Christmas cards to post out next month and we urge everyone to get their cards and calendars to help support this brilliant cause, while stocks last.’

The calendar is priced at just £5 and a pack of 10 A5-size cards can be purchased for £6. Both are available from the VIP Store in Strand Street, Douglas, Corrin Court in Onchan, and Patricia Wild Opticians in Ramsey and Farmhill. Alternatively call 674727 or email
