We've got Christmas all wrapped up!

The ‘Let’s do it for ME’ elves have been very busy recently, and with Christmas not far away they thought they’d give you a helping hand.  All their hard work has paid off and we can now offer fantastic Christmas cards, calendars and gifts - all available to buy from the comfort of your home and delivered directly to your door.  Well, we did say we had it wrapped!  What’s more, you’ll be helping us too, since all purchases will raise much needed funds towards biomedical ME research.
Many thanks to all our little elves that have been working behind the scenes to make this happen.  Let’s do it for Christmas and ME!
Following our very successful ‘Let’s Get Snapping for ME! 2012 Christmas Cards Photo Competition,’ we are pleased to announce that in the end 10 photographs were chosen to be printed.  All cards are A5 in size and produced on top quality 350gsm card.  They come in packs containing 10 cards, either featuring one design or all 10.  Please specify if ordering packs of individual designs.  All cards have the following message inside, ‘With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year’.  Prices per pack (including postage and packaging) are: 
UK £4.25
Europe £6.25
Rest of the World £7.25

Our 2013 A4 calendar is now available and features 12 stunning photos, one for each month, of places all around the UK.   These were kindly donated by those with ME and supporters of our campaign.  There’s a generous grid for each month, handy for writing in those forthcoming appointments and events.  This is a quality product, with both the front and back cover of 350gsm card and the inner pages of 200gsm paper.  This makes it not only perfect for yourself, but a great gift too.  Prices per calendar (including postage and packaging) are:
UK £7.00
Europe £9.00
Rest of the World £10.00
