The highly anticipated third edition of The Wicklow Calendar was launched on Monday night at the Powerscourt Arms in Enniskerry, Anne Randolph provided the beautiful music and patron of the Wicklow Hospice Foundation Chris DeBurgh also made an appearance on the night.
The calendar of stunning Wicklow landscapes, kindly donated by 9 local photographers, is now on sale across the Garden County now for €10 each.
It’s aim is to raise funds for the 5 Cancer Support Centres in the County and the Wicklow Hospice Foundation.
The project was the brainchild of Marlena Murphy, who worked closely with East Coast FM for the last 10 years and has participated in every year of the East Coast FM Coffee Morning.
In partnership with local designer and photographer Richie Kelly, Marlena designed, co-ordinated and executed the calendar. The duo want to both boost funds for the annual East Coast FM charity event, they raised over €13,000 in the last two years since the inaugural edition, and also create awareness of the wonderful beauty spots around the County.
The team hope this year’s calandar will be even more successful than in the past two years. “We were overwhelmed with how successful the calendar became over the last two years and how many countries it reached. It turned out to be a very popular christmas present and it has reached every continent (apart from Antarctica! If you know everyone down there let us know and we will send them a copy), We hope this year we can raise even more much needed funds and give people 12 stunning images for their wall to look at throughout 2018”
The team at East Coast FM will be promoting and selling the calendar throughout November and December.
The calendar is available to buy at many locations all across Wicklow, for details of points of sale see www.facebook.com/wicklowc
