If you are sick of giving the same old presents at Christmas, a Norfolk-based company might have just the solution.
Anglia Giving produces vouchers which the receiver can give to any charity in the county.
Director David Black said: "There are thousands of charities in Norfolk, and many are too little to be able to spend a lot of time fundraising.
"Norfolk Charity Vouchers are an extension of a service we have been running nationally since 2002, and will help raise much-needed money for many small charities."
The gift vouchers come in a seasonal greeting card, showing a Norfolk winter scene, and are also accompanied by a leaflet featuring a selection of local charities to help the recipient choose which to support.
Anglia Giving is a not-for-profit company based in Burnham Thorpe, near Wells. It already operates nationally and internation-ally but the company hopes that by creating vouchers with a more local focus, a whole new set of people will start using the service.

Anglia Giving is working in association with Norfolk Community Foundation to promote the scheme and any profits made will be donated to the foundation, which supports community and voluntary activity across the county.
Norfolk Community Foundation director Kate Kingdon said: "Many people wish to make a contribution to their local communities, but are not sure how to go about it.
"This remarkable scheme allows people the freedom to pinpoint the exact social cause and geographical area they wish to support."
