Dan Dunbar this week presented a cheque to St Wilfrid’s Hospice after raising £1,400 through the sale of his popular Polegate photography calendar.
This is the fifth year running Dan has organised the photography competition for local people. He asked them to enter photographs of their favourite local sites, which he then reproduced in the calendar sponsored by local businesses.
He said, “Polegate and local residents have been very supportive for the fifth year running in making the calendar a success yet again. I would like to thank my sponsors who make it possible to create the popular calendar and everyone involved for their support especially those who have been selling the calendars in local shops and a big thank you to everyone who has purchased one.”
Chris Clark, Community Support Co-ordinator at St Wilfrid’s, said, “A huge thank you to Dan for once again organising this competition in aid of the hospice. The calendar always proves popular and raises a considerable amount of money.”
Dan added that this would be the last Polegate Calendar for a few years as he has decided to put the project on hold to enable it to refresh itself.
He said, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the businesses and residents of Polegate for their fantastic and continued support over the last five years, during which time it has raised more than £7,000 for local charities.”
He saluted the sponsors, the photograph contributors and the purchasers.
“The support I have received from the people of Polegate has been wonderful and allowed me to create great calendars which have raised so much. Thank you – it is much appreciated.
