CELEBRATIONS® - Twelve Days of Christmas

This year, for the first time, CELEBRATIONS chocolates and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) are giving you the opportunity to buy a Christmas card that you won’t want to give away - and you’ll be doing your bit for charity!

A diverse range of celebrities from the world of TV, Music, Sport and even the House of Lords have all participated in a project that will revolutionise charity Christmas cards.

World famous photographer The Earl of Lichfield and CELEBRATIONS have created twelve stunning cards that are themed around the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”- but with a modern twist.

The cards will be exclusively available at Woolworths stores from November 6th and all proceeds from the sale of the cards will be donated to the NSPCC’s ‘FULL STOP’ Campaign.

Kay Nicholls from CELEBRATIONS said: "People love giving and receiving CELEBRATIONS at Xmas time, just as they love giving and receiving cards, so the two make perfect partners for a modern Xmas"
