The HOMELINK team is delighted to announce that the charity’s first fundraising Christmas card has been produced thanks to the generosity of Lewes-based equestrian artist, Paul Lucas, and a grant from the Pannett Trust.

The wintery local scene, ‘Spirits on the Wind’, depicts the Ashcombe windmill off Juggs Lane in Kingston and the two local horses that used to graze nearby. It was donated by Paul to help raise vital Christmas funds for HOMELINK. With printing costs covered by a special grant from the Pannett Trust, the team is delighted to have just produced its first print run of the fundraising Christmas cards.

The cards, sold in packs of 10 with an RRP of £6.50, can be purchased directly from the ‘Cards for Good Causes’ shop on School Hill (Lewes) or by emailing:

All proceeds from the sale of these cards will go to support HOMELINK’s work of supporting people into housing.

Paul Lucas  is an acclaimed equestrian artist and has been a Lewes resident for most of his life. HOMELINK first teamed up with Paul last year when he kindly gifted a painting for the ‘Home is where the craft is’ online auction. His painting for the auction which depicted a scene on Cliffe Bridge, Lewes, raised over £250 for the auction.

The ‘Spirits on the Wind’ painting has also been gifted by Paul to raise additional money for HOMELINK. The unframed 30cm x 25cm oil painting is open to offers to interested parties by emailing: and is due to feature in a special online HOMELINK auction in the new year.
