Artist Ailsa Lyn is pictured holding her painting of Sudbury which has been selected for the town’s charity Christmas card this year.

Entitled ‘Crisp December - Brundon Lane’, the card is on sale at the Sudbury Christmas card sale at Sudbury Library on Market Hill, selling a selection of cards on behalf of 250 charities, including East Anglian Air Ambulance, St Nicholas Hospice Care and Suffolk Wildlife Trust.

Staffed by a team of local volunteers - some pictured here with Ailsa - the pop-up shop is part of a network of 300 temporary shops run by Cards for Good Causes, a national charity. According to the organisation, in the past 10 years, charities have received more than £40 million from Cards for Good Causes.

Shop manager Lucy Fry said: “Buying charity cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes.”
