Ian McLachlan enjoys writing whimsical verse for the amusement of family and friends.  He previously produced a poetry booklet that was successful in raising money for our Margaret Kerr Unit Appeal in 2011.

Hannah Longmuir is a countryside artist based in the Scottish Borders.  Working mainly in pencil, she records the details of the fields and woodlands and hedgerows around her.  She creates calm, delicate drawings, carefully observed and full of character.  She then uses these drawings to create her beautiful range of nature-inspired cards and stationery.

"My parents were both wonderful gardeners and these cards are a tribute to them and the little wildlife havens they created. "

10% of each card sold will be donated to the appeal.
