Joanna Lumley OBE, Sir Quentin Blake, Claudia Winkleman, Jane Asher, and more, have come together to create a range of illustrated artwork that can be sent as e-cards in support of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. The idea is for people to send a thank you to those that have supported them through the most challenging of years. With the designs hosted on charity e-card platform DontSendMeACard.com, those sending the exclusive artwork can donate what they would have spent on cards and stamps. The donations go towards supporting seriously ill children across the UK.
