Photographic Fundraising

It makes sense to use the skills we have to raise finances and Martial has been taking this seriously. Over the last weeks he and his wife Lea have been working hard to prepare for a photographic exhibition. In fact most of the team have been involved: Tim made frames, Pam helped to set up the venue, Evelien served drinks at the opening night and Miranda acted as the MC. Held at a local coffee shop, Martial has framed several of his best shots taken in various locations around the world over the past half dozen years. Lea also created postcards and greeting cards of the prints for sale.

The opening night was a great success, with many visitors gathering at the coffee shop for a drink and to peruse the photos. Mounted with short descriptions of the story behind the shot, guests also enjoyed hearing from Martial as he described the context of some of the photographs. The exhibition runs for the next week and we are looking forward to hearing that many sales have been made: well done Martial!
