Photo competition success

Detail of Ruth Elner's winning photo of the mere on a foggy day

Published on 01 April 2021 12:48 PM

Age UK North Shropshire Supporters raised £560 to support local older people through a ‘Photos from Lockdown’ competition.

The judges were inundated with wonderful photographs from the 14 and under and 15 and over age groups.

Ruth Elner won the adult contest with a mysterious picture of the mere on a foggy day; Fiona Evans took a strong photograph of black and white cows; and Kathryn Goddard came third with an exquisite picture of a dragonfly.

Cameron Parry won the younger category with a cute picture of a spring lamb; Florence Sweeney took second place with a grand panorama taken from Rodney’s Pillar; and Sofie Glinos came third with an unusual photo of a newt on a rock.

Anne Wignall, President of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: ‘We want to thank everyone who took the trouble to enter the photo competition and helped us raise so much money for older people. Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin’s services have never been more in demand as we have faced the pandemic together.’

‘We were really impressed by the photographs that were sent in; we would have liked them all to be winners! Well done to everyone.’

A selection of photos will be produced in Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin’s 2022 calendar, which will be on sale later in the year.
