A perfect cause to treat yourself or a loved one.
If the sudden appearance of some good old Manchester rain (and general state of the world) is getting you down, consider supporting your local photographer and providing COVID-19 relief with one of these prints.
Photographs for the Trussell Trust, an initiative organised by Alexandra Leese, Simon Rogers, and Bianca Raggi, launched this week.
Something positive to have emerged in light of everything going on in the world right now, is the way that our creative arts have responded to the crisis.
Whether it’s our emerging designers pitching in to create scrubs for the NHS or local illustrators creating t-shirts to help small businesses get back on their feet, Manchester is buzzing with a heightened sense of community at the moment, something which I’m sure won’t be going anywhere when this is all over.
The photographic print sale is raising urgent funds for The Trussell Trust, who support two-thirds of food banks across the UK (!!).
Many members of our community are now facing financial uncertainty, with food banks seeing a massive increase in demand due to the Coronavirus pandemic and in dire need of funding.
Before the pandemic, over 14 million people in the UK were living in poverty, and this is only getting worse. Working incredibly hard round the clock, our food banks are providing much-needed relief to those who need a helping hand right now.
Over 140 UK-based photographers have donated prints to The Trussell Trust’s online fundraiser, with each print measuring at 8 x 11 inches and priced at £100.
100% of the proceeds will go to The Trussell Trust (minus £10 which will cover production costs).
