GREAT INITIATIVE: Kings Langley photographer raised money for NHS by taking socially distanced pictures

 Published on: 27th May 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

Professional wedding and family photographer Natalie Chiverton, of Hempstead Road, raised money for the NHS by working on a project she named “Portraits By The Window.”

The project entailed walking and cycling around the village photographing families from a distance.

She said: “This week I have photographed over 80 families while keeping my social distance and using my zoom lens. I asked families to donate a minimum of £7.50 for three downloads per family and all donations will be given to NHS Charities Together.”

Natalie got in touch with the families by writing about her idea on the Kings Langley community group on Facebook and she was surprised by the positive response.

She added: “The response was just unbelievable. I have about 200 families taking part.  I can honestly say that every family has been incredibly kind, supportive and very generous.  It’s been totally overwhelming. 

“This is also my way to say thank you to the NHS for all they did for me. I severely broke my leg last August and the surgeons, doctors and nurses at Watford General Hospital spent five hours putting me back to together. 

“I now have three metal plates and 12 screws in my left leg. Four months later I was back on my feet and working again and for that I will be eternally grateful to the wonderful team at Watford General.”

Natalie managed to triple her initial target of £1000, at the time of writing she is only £80 away to raise £3000.
