Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre is urging businesses to buy its Christmas cards to raise enough funds to give needy children a much-deserved holiday.

The charity takes 600 youngsters from across the county on holiday to its holiday centre in Skegness every year, but its service has not been able to run since 2019 due to Covid restrictions.

To enable holidays to return next year, the charity has printed two special Christmas cards and is urging businesses to consider using them to wish clients best wishes for the festive season.

The charity would also welcome a festive donation from any local businesses who would like to offer their support but have chosen not to send Christmas cards this year.

One of the cards is a nostalgic image of children being taken on a bus to its Skegness centre in the late 1930s, while the other, ‘’Winter Trees”, has been donated by well-known Derbyshire photographer and former BBC Radio Derby presenter Ashley Franklin.

DCHC’s Christmas cards featuring both images and are on sale at £4 for a pack of 10. To support the charity’s Christmas cards appeal, contact Lesia Tombs in the DCHC office on 01332 345424 or email
