We can dispatch the membership pack to you or directly to the new Friend in time for Christmas with a gift message; please indicate your preference in the gift message box.

The final date for online Christmas Membership orders is Wednesday 14 December 2016. We’ll do our best, but any orders received after this date may not arrive in time for Christmas.
