Illustrator Linda Combi raises funds for Lemon Tree Trust with new postcard series

Thank you to illustrator Linda Combi for supporting Lemon Tree Trust again in 2024.

Earlier this year, Linda held an exhibition, ‘52 Postcards on the theme of Oasis’, at the Pyramid Gallery in York, UK. Proceeds from gallery and online sales during this time have been divided between Lemon Tree Trust and the UNHCR.

Linda’s postcards on the theme of oasis are reflections on migration, symbolised by the natural world. The postcard format expresses the desire to find tranquillity, safety, beauty and hope, which war and climate change obstruct too often.

Original collages, printed cards and booklets are still available to buy online on Linda’s website and at the Pyramid Gallery. A share of proceeds will be donated to Lemon Tree Trust.

Our thanks again to Linda, as well as to the Pyramid Gallery.


Linda first supported Lemon Tree Trust in 2020, with an exhibition showcasing work inspired by a Channel 4 news story titled ‘The Last Gardener of Aleppo’.
