Our Christmas Cards and 2024 Diaries

This holiday season, we have some amazing Christmas Cards and 2024 diaries available for you to buy, helping support the Hospice and also providing a more sustainable choice to keep this Christmas green.

Looking for a unique card to send your Season’s Greetings?

St Wilfrid’s has 15 unique Christmas Card designs available, giving you multiple choices to send your season’s greetings to loved ones, while helping to support local lives. Included in our 15 designs are three bespoke designs to St Wilfrid’s (Chichester Cross, Santa Over Bosham, South Coast Christmas), created from the ideas put together by both our retail office team and some of our amazing volunteers, a true collaboration of opinions and ideas.

We have also brought back the legendary ‘Fluffy Robin’ design to our card selection.  This has always been a popular image for us in the past and we are keeping our fingers crossed it will be just as popular this year, particularly with the introduction of ‘Fluffy Robin Junior’! 

The packaging is different this year, offering a box-style design we have not had before, meaning we are supporting a more sustainable change by removing the usual plastic seals.

Last year the Christmas Cards helped to raise a whopping £45,269 which could help to pay for over a month of group activities and enriching therapies at our Living Well Centre.

So far this year, our flagship shop in Chichester has led the way this year, selling £92.00 of cards in the first day of them being for sale in the shop, with our East Wittering shop a very close second. Our first week of sales at the end of August raised £702, proving it is never too early to start buying for Christmas!

Want to get ahead and plan your new year?

Also available are our 2024 diaries, now with a different look.

This year we have gone for a photographic-style front cover. To find the images we needed, we set up a photo competition, open to our staff and volunteers, to send in photos they had taken in our local area of a coastal or countryside theme. A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who took part, the photos we received were all amazing and showed us that we have some brilliant photographers amongst us.

The finished diaries look wonderful with the photos, giving them a more local feeling.

Another big ‘thank you’ to the companies and organisations that advertise in our diaries, it is their backing that allows the diaries to be produced and we are very grateful for their continued support of the Hospice.

Whether you’re looking to send out seasons greetings, or to plan the year ahead, buying through St Wilfrid’s is an affordable and sustainable choice that also helps make a difference to local lives.
Both the Christmas Cards and 2024 Diaries are available at any of our 12 retail shops, or online here:
