Three photos taken in our local area have been chosen to be included in RGB Building Supplies’ ‘Love where you live’ 2021 calendar, which will be sold to raise funds for Devon Air Ambulance and Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust.
RGB had asked residents of the South West to send in photographs that celebrate the diverse scenery of the region, and photos of a stonechat bird on Dartmoor taken by Steve Jones, Hill Bridge on the River Tavy taken by Kate Bence, and mute swans in Bere Ferrers taken by Jess Masley, are three of the entries that the builders merchant picked for the calendar. As well as seeing their photos in print, Steve, Kate and Jess have received a £100 voucher each to spend at their local RGB branches.
Tracy Owen, Fundraising Manager at Devon Air Ambulance, commented: “We’re extremely grateful to RGB for their continued support through what has been a challenging year. We’d also like to thank all who submitted their photos for choosing to support the calendar, and well done to all winners for having their fabulous photos selected.
‘The calendar is a brilliant showcase of our beautiful part of the country and we hope our regular supporters, as well as new supporters, will be inspired to purchase a calendar and, in turn, help to ensure the future our service.”
Paul Lethbridge, Branch Manager at RGB Okehampton, added: “We received over 60 entries, which all highlighted what an amazing part of the country we live in, so it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to just 12. Congratulations to Steve, Kate and Jess for having their photos chosen – they are stunning. We hope those who buy our calendar and help us support two fantastic charities enjoy seeing a different piece of what makes our region so special every month of 2021.”
The calendar can be purchased from Devon Air Ambulance and Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust online shops, all RGB branches and RGB’s website: www.rgbltd.co.uk. The calendar costs £7.50 with all proceeds being donated to the air ambulance charities.
