Send eCards to people you care about while supporting our important work.

While printed charity cards can only offer a small percentage to the charity (typically 10-15%), when you send one of our customised ecards you’ll donate the cost of cards and stamps.

It’s a little gesture that means a lot to CHD patients.

You can use Don’t Send me a Card at Christmas, for birthdays and other celebrations, and “just because”.

If you’ve decided to show your support to the Somerville Foundation, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The valuable work we carry out wouldn’t be possible without people like you.

Three simple steps to show you care.
