Age UK North Shropshire Supporters raised £560 to support older people through a Photos from Lockdown competition. Judges were inundated with wonderful photographs from the 14 and under and 15 and over age groups.

The adult contest was one by Ruth Elner with a mysterious picture of the mere on a foggy day; Fiona Evans took a strong photograph of black and white cows; and Kathryn Goddard came third with an exquisite picture of a dragonfly.

Cameron Parry won the younger category with a cute picture of a spring lamb; Florence Sweeney took second place with a grand panorama taken from Rodney’s Pillar; and Sofie Glinos came third with an unusual photo of a newt on a rock.

Anne Wignall, President of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: “We want to thank everyone who took the trouble to enter the photo competition and helped us raise so much money for older people. Age UK’s services have never been more in demand as we have faced the pandemic together.

“We were really impressed by the photographs that were sent in – we would have liked them all to be winners! Well done to everyone.”

A selection of photos will be produced in Age UK’s 2022 calendar, which will be on sale later in the year.
