Marlborough features in Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s Christmas cards

The popular ‘Christmas in Marlborough’ card is once again being sold to raise funds for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

Following the success of the card last year, the charity is selling it as part of its 2017 range of Christmas cards.

The card has been kindly designed, painted and donated by Marlborough artist Colin Palmer. It shows Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s helicopter flying over a snowy Marlborough High Street with the Town Hall in the background.

Colin is a member of Marlborough Artists and has been a professional artist for over 30 years. He said: “I’m delighted to hear that my design attracted so many buyers last year and I would encourage people to support such an admirable cause.”

As well as ‘Christmas in Marlborough’ the charity’s other cards include ‘Christmas Greetings from Wiltshire,’ which shows the helicopter flying over a White Horse during snowfall, plus other traditional Christmas scenes.

Claire Kelly, Head of People, Retail and Supporter Engagement, said: “Colin Palmer’s card was really popular with the public last year and we are delighted to be selling it again as part of our range of Christmas cards for 2017. The funds raised by our Christmas cards will help to keep our helicopter and crew flying and saving lives.”

The cards are in shops and other outlets all over the county and are priced at £4.00 per pack of ten. To see the list of stockists go to the website –
