This year Memory Gate Photography and The Master Photographer’s Association Cherubs Photographers will be helping to raise funds and support for Tommy’s the UK’s leading Baby Charity.
One of the ways we’re doing that is through sponsorship. This year I will once again be taking part in the Prudential RideLondon – Surrey 100.
Hopefully this year it won’t pour down with rain all day!
The 100 mile ride is going to be a big challenge. Last year due to the rain a couple of the big Surrey hills were cut out so I have yet to complete the full course. It was probably just as well as my preparation wasn’t the best it could have been. Despite the fact that the furthest I had cycled in one go was 35 miles, and having just photographed a wedding the previous day I did pretty well for someone with a 4 week old baby at home!
There are a couple of ways you can support me and help us bring up our fundraising total.
Firstly you can make a donation via our Money Giving Page.
Location Portrait Sessions
The second is by booking a location portrait session with us.
The session fee is only £20 which goes straight to Tommy’s.

Tommy’s wants to give every baby the best chance of being born healthy. Right now, in the UK, one in four women loses a baby during pregnancy or birth.
We fund medical research into the causes of premature births, stillbirths and miscarriages. We have set up three research centres in the UK, in St Thomas Hospital in London, St Marys in Manchester and the recently established centre in the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. Each centre focused its research efforts on different issues relating to pregnancy.
We also provide research-based information about pregnancy health issues for medical professionals and parents-to-be.
This includes a dedicated telephone midwife service, a comprehensive website and free books and leaflets dedicated to promoting health in pregnancy and pre-pregnancy.
We are supported by people who want to do something about the lack of research and information around pregnancy issues like miscarriage, stillbirths and premature births.
By 2030 we want to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy or birth.
