Christmas is less than 100 days away, which for two Rotary clubs, means that their annual Christmas card fundraisers are in full swing.
Rotary Lindum Lincoln and Rotary Ellesmere Port have each been selling charity Christmas cards for a number of years, raising thousands for their respective causes in the process; End Polio Now and The Rotary Foundation.
For Linudum Lincoln, their End Polio Now Christmas card has been designed by local artist Mary Perridge.
The back page of each card explains Rotary’s long-term project to eradicate Polio since 1985, as well as a membership marketing message about the organisations.
Lindum’s International Chairman, Simon Kalson is hoping to grow the sales yet again this year. “As with all printing, higher volumes reduce the unit cost, so we will be keeping the price the same at a competitive £4.25 per pack of 10 cards including post and packaging, and we hope to sustain or increase the profit per pack,” he said.
As with last year, Rotary clubs purchasing the End Polio Now cards will be credited with a contribution of £2.48, which grows to £7.44 with uplift from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Buying 50 packs will mean clubs receive a credit to their PolioPlus giving of £124.
Also available is Ellesmere Port’s cards raising money for The Rotary Foundation, Rotary’s own and only charity which supports sustainable humanitarian projects around the world.
Since its launch in the 1980s, their cards have raised over £300,000.
This year, five festive designs are available in packs of 10 for £4.00, along with a bumper pack of mixed designs (30 cards in total) priced at £10.00.
