An estate agent and auctioneer is calling on budding young artists to help design their charity Christmas card.

Durrants, which has offices in Beccles and Halesworth, is raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and will be sending the cards out to all its clients as well as selling them to the public to raise funds for the charity.

And children aged between four and 16 are invited to submit their drawings to be in with a chance of winning the honour of seeing their design made into a card.

Business development manager for Durrants Dominic Parravani said: “It’s important to involve as many people as possible to make sure we raise awareness as well as raising as much money as we can.”

East Anglian Air Ambulance south norfolk fundraising officer Holly Noon added: “Each mission costs on average £2,800 and we rely solely on public funding, so having the support of Durrants, the wider Beccles community and all they are doing for us is fantastic.

One design from each of Durrant’s offices in Beccles, Diss, Harleston, Halesworth and Southwold will be chosen by the directors and produced into this year’s charity Christmas card, winning £25 cash each.
