Widnes based, portrait photographers McGillicuddy & Associates announced the launch of ‘Photographers without Frontiers’ – a National initiative to raise much needed funds for the NHS at the end of May and have already raised over £3,400
Launched by Ronan Ryle and internationally renowned photographer, Damian McGillicuddy, ‘Photographers without Frontiers’ sees over 100 photographers from all over the UK come together to offer families a chance to capture a precious image of their loved ones and at the same time raise funds for the NHS.
Damian commented ‘We wanted to give something back to the NHS and show our appreciation to them for not just what they have recently done for the country, but what they have been doing for us over the past 70 plus years. We are asking people to make a minimum donation of £10 through our just giving page to the ‘NHS Charities Together’ and in return they will receive a voucher from us which entitles them to free portrait session with us and a web image for them to use saying they have supported the NHS.’
‘I think now more than ever we see the value and importance of capturing special moments of our loved ones, family, pets and children, which is why we thought as photographers we should all come together in what is a very competitive industry and make a difference to a special charity. We also want to give something back to the communities in which we live and work, along with raising these vital funds for the wonderful work that the ‘NHS Charities Together’ carries out.’
‘NHS Charities Together’ play an important role in contributing to provide services that are above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide. They are also a forum for nationwide fundraising and advocacy campaigns, offering specialist advice and guidance and bespoke training, as well as access to online resources for those who need them.
‘Photographers without Frontiers’ aims to bring together a community of photographers, from Scotland to the South Coast, with just two aims; support ‘NHS Charities Together’ and ensure families have a fantastic image to enjoy for years to come. One thing for sure is that social distancing has reminded us all that only a portrait can bridge the distance and time until we are able to see and spend time with our loved ones.
