The 2017 Wicklow Calendar in aid of Cancer Support is out!
The highly anticipated second edition of The Wicklow Calendar is out, just in time for Christmas.
A calendar of stunning Wicklow images, kindly donated by 11 Irish and UK photographers, is 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 €6,500 with last year’s inaugural edition, and also create awareness of the wonderful beauty spots around the County with an emphasis on being active.
Speaking about the Project, Marlena said; “We want the calendar to encourage and inspire people to get out and be active in Wicklow while enjoying the stunning views and scenery it has to offer right on our doorstep”.
The team has doubled the number of printed copies, and hope this year’s calendar will be even more successful than last year’s edition. “We were overwhelmed with how successful last year’s edition was and how many countries it reached. We hope this year we can raise even more much needed funds and give people twelve stunning images for their wall to look at throughout 2017”
The calendar is available to buy from Wicklow County Tourism’s offices on The Murrough in Wicklow Town, and at many locations all across Wicklow. For details of points of sale see www.facebook.com/wicklowcalendar also available to buy online from East Coast FM www.eastcoast.fm/calendar
