Familiar landscapes sprinkled with snow form part of St Clare Hospice's Christmas card selection this year.

The end of life hospice has released 16 original designs to celebrate the yuletide season.

They feature work from artists painting Epping, Loughton and other areas the hospice covers.

The festive designs are painted by a group of East Anglian based artists, Mike Sherard and Reg Siger.

A pack of 10 cards costs £3.95, which is enough to pay for one hour of the charity’s 24 hour advice line.

The Christmas greeting cards are available to purchase from any of St Clare’s nine charity shops or at the hospice centre itself.

Alternatively, they can also be purchased on St Clare’s Facebook shop page at facebook.com/stclarehospice/shop or on their eBay shop at www.stores.ebay.co.uk/St-ClareHospice
