Festive Scene Features On Tresco Church Charity Card

tresco_christmas_cardHundreds of homes around the UK will feature a festive scene from Tresco this Christmas.

Since the summer, Churchwarden Eve Cooper has been selling island greetings cards to raise money for the refurbishment of St Nicholas Church, currently underway.

The picture was originally created by artist Livi Gosling for the Tresco Times.

2,000 packs of cards, which contain five A6 or A5 sized cards have already been sent out.

Eve hopes that more will be bought before Christmas but the cards won’t date and are suitable for next year too.

Eve says the image shows an imagined Christmas scene on Tresco, with the sea bordered by fairy lights, decorated trees and fishing boats.

The packs of five cards cost £3 for the A6 size and £4.75 for the larger A5 version and you can find out how to order them here.
