CHARITY CALENDAR CLICKS INTO ACTION FOR FOURTH YEAR

Martin Farrer, competition winner for 2017 and 2019 with Ceri Gibson, Director at Tyne Rivers Trust

Tyne Rivers Trust is launching its fourth charity calendar and is asking for anyone who enjoys the River Tyne to submit their best photos of the Tyne catchment to fill it.

The theme is My Tyne so images can cover anything from people enjoying the river to wildlife, as long as it’s taken within the River Tyne catchment, which stretches from Redesdale to Haltwhistle to Tynemouth and includes the River Derwent, River Rede and the River Allens.

A judging panel will pick the best 12 photos and the winners will receive a copy of the glossy calendar displaying their winning photo. The money raised from the calendar will help to fund the Trust’s River School programme which gets children out of the classroom and into the outdoors to learn about the region’s river system and the creatures that live in it.

 

Ceri Gibson, Director of Tyne Rivers Trust says: “Our calendar is proving more popular by the year which is a great reflection of people’s affection for the river and all of the activities that take place along it.

 

“As the only environmental charity focused on the River Tyne and its catchment, the work that we do to improve water quality and river habitat is vital for a better river and a better region.

 

“Sales from our calendar go directly towards our River School programme which gives children the opportunity to learn and experience all that is great about the river and the animals that make it their home.”

 

Martin Farrer who scooped the front cover shot in 2017 and 2019 says: “The competition is a great way to show your appreciation for the river whether you’re a keen amateur photographer or just take the odd snap. There is also a great satisfaction in walking into a shop and seeing your picture on display.”

 

EGGER, the chipboard factory which sits alongside the River Tyne at Hexham has continued its support of Tyne Rivers Trust for the third year by covering the production costs of the calendar.

 

Tobias Zimmermann, Plant Director Technical/Production at EGGER says: “We are delighted to support the ongoing work of Tyne Rivers Trust. Their continued focus on sustainability, is a good fit with our environmental commitment at EGGER.”

 

To enter, email up to two photos, 3mb in size to: info@tyneriverstrust.org. Photos should be labelled with your full name and where they were taken. Please also include your address and telephone number in the email.

 

The closing date for entries is 28 July 2019 and the calendar will be available to buy from Tyne Rivers Trust website and shops around the Tyne Catchment in September.
