Back in those heady days of June this year Sandeep and I organised a photo walk in London (you can find the original post here), It was a great day with great people. The walk was shortly after the terrible events in Manchester and London and we thought it would be nice if we could do something to raise a bit of money for charity. So this is what we came up with, each of the photographers on the walk chose one of their favourite images of the day to be collected into a set of limited edition prints. There are 25 sets of 8 postcard sized prints (6×4 and 6×6) for sale for £25 a set, with 100% of the proceeds going to the British Red Cross UK Solidarity Fund, we will cover the cost of the production and postage. If you would like to donate more than £25, you are more than welcome. The photographs can be seen in the image below, with the photographers below that.
There is an order form at the bottom of the page, please fill it in and submit asap to secure your set of these limited edition photographs. If you want to donate more than the £25, please note that in the Additional Information box. When I receive your order I will send you a Paypal link for payment.
About the UK Solidarity Fund
The UK Solidarity Fund has been set up by the British Red Cross to help people affected by terror attacks in the UK, following the recent attacks in London and Manchester.
Eight people were killed and dozens injured after attacks in London Bridge and nearby Borough Market on 3 June.
Less than two weeks earlier, 22 people were killed and 119 injured at the Manchester Arena on 22 May.
The UK Solidarity Fund will help victims of terror attacks anywhere in the UK, in the first instance, in London.
Donations will ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties.
Thank you to all of the photographers below for letting us use their images, please follow them and visit their websites.
