It’s that time of year again and may I wish everyone out there a very merry Christmas. I will also use this as an opportunity to “plug” two of my favourite charities.
First I am sparing a moment to think of “those in peril on the sea” and the wonderful people at the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) who risk their own lives to save seafarers.
Of the Christmas cards I received this year, my favourite was the one above, sold on behalf of the RNLI. I always have a soft spot for them as many of my ancestors in Poole, Dorset, were fishermen. By chance Poole is also the home of the RNLI. Here’s their website.
I may send RNLI cards next year, but this year my chosen charity was the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds). Here is my favourite from those I sent out…
Merry Christmas everybody!
