INSPIRING: Calendar celebrating life to raise money for Berkhamsted hospice

 Published on: 7th October 2022   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A group of people from Berkhamsted and surrounding areas have banded together to produce a calendar celebrating hope and life.

The calendar has been produced by a group of people who met while attending St Francis Hospice’s Hope course, which is for people who have suffered or are suffering from cancer.

Filled with photographs which are all about celebrating life, profits from calendar sales will be donated directly to the Hospice of St Francis.

Speaking to BerkhamstedNews, member of the group Kay Wraith said the calendar is a message from a “bunch of people who don’t want to be defined by their cancer”.

She said: “It’s about our journey and how we’ve come to terms with what’s happened to us and how we feel.

“It’s a calendar about hope and moving forward; even in your darkest moments, there’s got to be life.”

Kay added that the photos included won’t be like those from other scenic calendars, but will instead be a culmination of ‘out there’ photos depicting the things that matter to them.

She said: “It will include edgy photos of people who really want to make a point that you can still live your life.”

The photos from the calendar will also be displayed at an exhibition at Berkhamsted Town Hall on November 27.

    We are really enjoying the whole photo shoot experience and a massive shout out to Carl at Big Stick Photography who takes the most amazing photos and is fully supporting us in our cause. We can’t wait until the photography exhibition and calendar launch later in the year. If you are interested in sponsoring the calendar – please email lgcancerclub@gmail.com
