These christmas cards are being sold to raise fund for the Charles Dickens (Malton) Society. The Society aims to open up the 'Old Counting House' in Chancery Lane, Malton as a tourist attraction. This building was the inspiration for Dickens as Scrooges counting house in his novel 'A Christmas Carol'. The cards are £4.50 including postage.
The town of Malton was visited often by Charles Dickens because of his long friendship with Charles Smithson, a solicitor in the town. The Smithson family had their offices on Chancery Lane in Malton.
