Pressed for time?

If you’re pressed for time you can choose from three specially designed In Celebration donation leaflets. These PDF leaflets print on A4 paper in colour or black and white. Simply personalise, print, and then fold twice into a leaflet. (The top half may appear to be upside down at first. Don’t worry; this is so you can fold it into a leaflet.)
