Recommend a charity

If you have read any of the preceding blogs you will be aware that large parts of my time on the road will be undertaking activities to raise funds for, or donate my time and photography services to various charities.

Which charities are you looking to work with?

I will be happy to consider all charities, however, priority will be given to charities that work with:

  • Mental health awareness and support

  • Homelessness

  • Cancer research and support

  • Animal/Wildlife conservation

  • Child support and services

Where should the charity be based?

I'm interested in working with charities in all the countries that I will visit as part of this project. My initial plans are to travel Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Czechia, Austria, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Greece (other countries may be added)

How are you helping charities?

I will be helping charities in various ways including

  • Donating my time and photography services to charities that have any photography requirements. This could include staff headshots, a launch of a new service or product, an event or images for use in marketing or campaign use.

  • 10% of money earned from photoshoots that I am commissioned for on the road. The person/business that has commissioned me for the photoshoot will have the option of selecting which charity I donate the money to. Primary charities I'd be looking to support in the UK are Crises, Shelter, The Big Issue Foundation, Mind, Samaritans and Mental Health Foundation.

  • 10% of donations through "Buy me a coffee" will be donated to either Cancer Research UK, MacMillan and St Nicholas Hospice.

  • Up to 50% of proceeds from my stock photography images, calendars, photo books, limited edition prints and other purchasable products.

How can I help?

  • If you work for a charity that would benefit from free photography services or be a beneficiary of donations and are located in the UK or EU please get in touch to see how I can help/work with you.

  • Do you know someone involved in an international, country or local charity? Please make them aware of this project or get in touch to give me their details and I will reach out to them.

  • Help bring attention to this project by sharing content online (links to my social media channels at the bottom of the page) and letting your friends and family know. Growing support for the project is crucial for me to be able to provide these services to charities.

  • Do you work in the media? Can you help with getting word about this project out to the general public and charities out there?

  • Are you a social media influencer? Can you use your influence to assist in any way? A shoutout of the project, or donation of your time to get involved?

When does this project start?

The project is essentially underway. I have been offering my time and services to local charities for a few months already. Until I actually get the road trip underway I will be focussed on supporting local charities in the Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and London areas.

Please help me to help them!
