Horsham Museum is fundraising for charity through the sale of Christmas cards over the festive period.

The special charity Christmas card shop in the Causeway is now in full swing with a splendid display of great value cards.

They come from 17 different charities allowing you to make your selection in peaceful, friendly surroundings.

Well-known local artist John Davies has painted two new snowy scenes in Horsham entitled Winter in the Causeway, Horsham and Horsham Museum in the Causeway, Winter especially for the Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (SASBAH).

The charity is extremely grateful to John, who has most generously and consistently painted views of Horsham for them for the past 26 years, with their popularity swelling much needed funds.

Also on sale are a selection of John’s previous designs which are instantly recognizable as well known Horsham scenes.

Other local Sussex wintry views featured in the charity’s exclusive range have also been specially painted for SASBAH by well known local artist Stephen Hawkins.

His works cover the impressive Sussex Downs, the river Adur in winter and windmills on the South Downs.

SASBAH is where charity really does begin at home with more than 500 people of all ages known to the charity with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, both of which are still very much with us and can occur separately or together.

SASBAH helps to make their lives happier and more independent.

Their Christmas cards, together with those of 16 other charities, along with some great value Christmas paper and labels are now on sale.

The shop is open at the museum in the Causeway from 10am to 4.45pm Monday to Saturday until Saturday December 22.
