A CHRISTMAS card campaign - launched to raise money for a twinned Nepalese village - is being backed by the Saffron Walden Reporter.
The official Christmas cards of the Tang Ting Twinning Association are now on sale in the Reporter's office on Saffron Walden High Street.
The impoverished village of Tang Ting, at the foot of the Himalaya mountain range, is twinned with Debden and Wimbish.
Debden twinner Helen Carter said: "All of the money made by the sale of the cards will go straight to helping the people of Tang Ting.

"It's amazing how little it costs to buy a piece of equipment which could be life changing for a child in the village. The money raised from buying one pack of cards can go a very long way."
Tang Ting is the home of many of the Gurkha soldiers who are serving at the Carver Barracks in Wimbish.
