Send some Charity Cheer this Christmas

12th November 2019


What better way to celebrate our rescue animals than by buying and sending our bespoke designed Christmas cards this year?


Karen Pothecary, Retail Area Manager at MGAR comments “We have been very lucky this year to have our Christmas cards specially designed by Dorset artist Lucy Tidbury, who is well known for her range of wonderful products featuring animal portraits and local land marks. Lucy also has an MGAR rescue dog, Ned, who she rehomed from the Lincoln Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre and appreciates the importance of raising much needed funds for all the animals at the centres”.


Lucy and Ned


Lucy offered to paint three portraits featuring MGAR animals, and it was decided to paint Jake the Donkey who is at the Church Knowle Centre, Jeff (Jon Snow) a dog who was rehomed from the Lincoln Farm Centre and Misha, a cat who was rehomed from the Wingletang Centre in Devon. The original portraits are stunning and Lucy donated them to the charity to be used to raise additional funds. From the portraits, local printer LA Digital Print based in Poole, turned them into the beautiful cards.

The cards are now available to buy for just £4.70 for 10 cards (same design) from our rescue centres in Dorset and Devon, Dorset based charity shops in Kinson, Weymouth, Wimborne and Winton, as well as Lucy’s Farm, based in Swanage or from her online store www.lucysfarm.co.uk


All money raised from the sale of the cards will go towards caring for rescue animals.
