Pho­tog­ra­phers in the frame for cal­en­dar suc­cess

Stockport Express - - Picture Special -

KEEN pho­tog­ra­phers have had their work fea­tured in this year’s Ver­non Build­ing So­ci­ety cal­en­dar.

The 13 win­ning pic­tures, all show­ing scenes in Stock­port, have been se­lected for the cal­en­dar through a com­pe­ti­tion ask­ing peo­ple to send in their im­ages.

The cal­en­dar is now avail­able in the Ver­non’s six branches for a sug­gested do­na­tion of £5 and pro­ceeds will go to Sign­post Stock­port for Car­ers, se­lected by com­pe­ti­tion win­ner John Var­ley.

John’s pho­to­graph of the Red­dish Vale Viaduct was se­lected to fea­ture on the front page of the cal­en­dar.

He said: “Thank you for this op­por­tu­nity to pick the char­ity from your list.

“Af­ter look­ing through them I could find plenty of rea­sons to choose any of them to re­ceive the money raised from the cal­en­dar sales, but af­ter care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion I chose Sign­post.

“My wife and daugh­ter have both been car­ers and I have seen first hand how this can af­fect the lives of both the car­ers and the cared for.”

Ver­non mar­ket­ing man­ager Alex Deakin added: “This year’s cal­en­dar was an ab­so­lute suc­cess and will pro­vide well de­served funds for Sign­post Stock­port for Car­ers.”
