Local Artist Alan Oliver has designed this year's Rotary Club of Stamford St Martin's Christmas cards - money raised from sales are going towards Teenzone, a Stamford youth group and a young people's project called Lifestraw, which filters water in deprived communities.
Also, St John's Church in Stamford have started their annual Christmas card sale, which raises money for good causes and is now in its 7th year. This fundraising venture in Red Lion Square sees hundreds of cards and other festive items sold, and 79p in every £1 is given to range of deserving causes.
This year's theme is gold and purple - representing a "golden opportunity" for people to help donate money to charity.
The card sale was officially unveiled on Friday with roaring motorbikes from Sycamore Harley-Davidson of Uppingham. The sales will run until Wednesday, December 17.
