GENEROUS JEAN: Croxley resident releases greeting cards to support local wildlife hero

 Published on: 18th November 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Croxley resident has been busy selling greetings cards to support local wildlife rescue CW Wildlife. 

Animal lover Jean Armstrong has noticed the efforts of Chris Wicks of CW Wildlife and has been selling wildlife Christmas cards to raise money for the charity.

She said: “I had to take a pigeon to Chris quite recently when was one was a bus. I started following him on Facebook and then thought I would like to raise some money by producing Christmas cards with wildlife on.

“I posted on the Rickmansworth Facebook group to see how many people would be interested and sold 180 packs just like that.

“If all the packs of cards get sold he will be getting £1,250.”

Jean is no stranger to greeting cards and added that she has been producing them for just over three years and has raised nearly £15,000 for retired greyhounds as part of her fundraising business Blackrose Lexi Design.

She said: “I wouldn’t want to live without animals, I have always been fond of animals.

“The badgers at the end of my garden were inspiration for one of the card designs and the one with the small deer on is the deer that Chris rescued from a road accident.”

Residents can pick up the six cards from Linda in The Kitchen Croxley but have to pay for them in advance by emailing

Cards are also available to pick up from Robert Harris Jewellers in Rickmansworth on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays between 10am-2pm, if you call when outside the store.

Jean raises money for retired greyhounds all year round by selling cards from the jewellers and is thinking about selling wildlife cards throughout the year as well to continue to support Chris.
