We love the new Yorkshire Air Ambulance Christmas cards by Anita Bowerman. Not only do they look festive and fabulous, they will also raise much-needed funds for the charity. Did you know that it costs £12,000 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air? The NHS seconds paramedics to the YAA but it doesn’t fund the airborne service.
Featuring paintings by Harrogate-based artist Anita Bowerman, the cards cost a very reasonable £4 for a pack of ten and are available from the YAA website or from Anita at the Dove Tree Art Gallery, Harrogate, tel 07760 157046, www.anitabowerman.co.uk
Our favourite new design by Anita is “Yorkshire farm and Dales”, mainly because it makes you long to be there and we love the dog.
This card is called “The helicopter and white horse” and features the famous white horse of Kilburn, which is carved from the hillside and has been there since 1857.
Anita’s third new design for 2017 is “The essence of Christmas”.
