Croydon studio Memory Photography joins the national ‘Photographers without Frontiers’ initiative to say thank you to the NHS.
I’m sure, just like us, you clapped in gratitude for our NHS. At Memory Gate Photography we want to do something much more positive than just clap.
We are pleased to announce that we have joined the Charity initiative. “Photography without Frontiers”, a national initiative, to raise funds for NHS Charities Together and we hope you will join us in saying thank you to those that truly deserve our thanks.
It is a really simple thing to do. If you are like us, and you want to donate and support our NHS heroes, we are offering to swap you your donation for a complimentary photoshoot, when safe and appropriate to do so, and your choice of image as a web resolution digital file with the initiatives special, “I helped the NHS” banner, so we can paint social media NHS blue.
We are so passionate about helping support the cause the studio will add £5 to whatever donation you make so we can raise as much as we possibly can to help our NHS.
I’ve already made a donation so I’m proud to show my portrait with our “I helped our NHS” banner, make a donation and come and get yours.
There is a limited supply, so be quick, don’t miss out.
Photographers Without Frontiers
All you need to do is go to Photographers Without Frontiers, you can learn more about the charity initiative here and then make your donation.
Find your way back to us and we can send you your promissory voucher for your session. If you wish we can even tentatively look at available dates and make time to discuss your session, styles, colours etc.
You already know how much we value the memories we make on your behalf, it’s our job to give families precious memories that will last more than a lifetime.
If this pandemic has shown us all one thing, it’s just how important our friends and family are to us. Only a beautiful portrait can hold that emotion and bridge distance, and time apart, from those who are important to us. So the aim of this charity initiative is very much to create a win / win scenario. A win for the NHS as we raise funds, and a win for you in the fact that we will create an amazing image for you to take part in our program of social media gratitude. You never know, it may end up as your new favourite image, framed and on the wall, but that will be up to you.
Many of us have had to rely on the NHS to help us, and more than ever we value the work of dedicated doctors, nurses, porters, support workers, receptions and all NHS staff. We really want to help raise as much as we can so please, please, please share this with friends, family, work colleagues… everybody you can.
It will be amazing just to see you all again and to be taking great pictures together, so please spread the word, make your donation and we will see you at the studio soon.
Photographers without Frontiers Launch
Memory Gate are pleased to announce the launch of ‘Photographers without Frontiers’ and be part of this exciting national initiative to raise much needed funds for the NHS.
Launched by Ronan Ryle and internationally renowned photographer, Damian McGillicuddy, ‘Photographers without Frontiers’ sees over 100 photographers from all over the UK come together to offer families a chance to capture a precious image of their loved ones and at the same time raise funds for the NHS.
Michael Shilling from Memory Photography commented ‘With everything that has been going on over the last few months I wanted to give something back to the NHS and show our appreciation to them. I sometimes feel they do not get the recognition they truly deserve for what they do for our country. The ‘Photographers without Frontiers’ is a great initiative to be involved with, what we ask is for people to make a minimum donation of £10 through our just giving page to the ‘NHS Charities Together’ and in return they will receive a voucher from us which entitles them to free portrait session with myself/our team and a web image for them to use online saying they have supported the NHS.’
‘People really recognise the importance of capturing special moments of our loved ones, children, family and pets, which is why we thought as photographers we should all come together in what is a very competitive industry and make a difference to a special charity . We want to give something back to the communities in which we live and work, along with raising these vital funds for the wonderful work that the ‘NHS Charities Together’ carries out.’
NHS Charities Together
‘NHS Charities Together’ play an important role in contributing to provide services that are above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide. They are also a forum for nationwide fundraising and advocacy campaigns, offering specialist advice and guidance and bespoke training, as well as access to online resources for those who need them.
‘Photographers without Frontiers’ aims to bring together a community of photographers, from Scotland to the South Coast, with just two aims; support ‘NHS Charities Together’ and ensure families have a fantastic image to enjoy for years to come. One thing for sure is that social distancing has reminded each and every one of us, that only a portrait can bridge the distance and time until we are able to see and spend time with our loved ones.
