Autumn Offer: No Place for Poverty

* Please note, this special offer has now ended. You can still support us by becoming a Supporter or purchasing our Pictures of Wales greetings cards.

Wales is a place of extraordinary beauty, outstanding research and world-class sport. A place of diversity, culture and pride. Wales is no place for poverty.

You can help us eliminate poverty in Wales by donating just £3.25 a month. And if you start doing it before 16th November, we’ll send you a FREE pack of our beautiful ‘Pictures of Wales’  greetings cards.

Usually priced £5, the cards feature the stunning works of two artists, celebrating the parts of Wales that make many of us proud to call it home, whilst also depicting the huge challenges we face.

Your support will fund our anti-poverty projects and ensure:

  • No child has to go without the basics
  • Everyone has access to affordable, secure housing
  • A more inclusive economy with diverse businesses and good jobs

We speak out and shake things up

Our work has already put prosperity on the Welsh agenda, secured growth hubs in the hard-hit south Wales Valleys and kept grants to help children from poor families afford a school uniform.

You generosity will help us let more decision-makers know that Wales is #NoPlaceForPoverty

Get your free pack of greetings cards today – available while stocks last

We are extremely grateful to artists Mary Jolley and Barbara Castle OBE for generously donating the paintings featured on the cards.

You can find out more about them below and on our Pictures of Wales sales page.

Barbara Castle OBE

“Tip’ has been influenced by my experiences within the villages of Welsh valleys and depicts the aesthetic quality and sense of community which I believe is often overlooked when people think of the Valleys.

“For me, Wales is a place of incredible layers. The aesthetic of our valleys, the hills and descending terraces, is astounding. But we tend to live our lives on the bottom tier, never looking up and appreciating what we have.”

Barbara Castle OBE

Mary Jolley

“On The Rocks was inspired by Ramsey Island in Pembrokeshire. I have had an ongoing fascination with rocks and cliffs for many years and this is expressed as an enduring theme throughout my work.

“For me, Wales is a place of optimism, resilience and strength with a population proud to say they are Welsh.”

Mary Jolley,
