youngster’s birthday fundraiser

written by Ellis

My name is Ellis and for my 10th birthday party I planned a pool party for my class in school. As I usually have lots of presents from friends and family for my birthday, I thought it would be a good idea to donate some money instead of having presents this year.

written by Gareth Jenkins

The calendar came about after a conversation I had with one of our dads, Paul Fears, who is also the photographer on the project. It was a project that we both wanted to do but it was finding the right concept that was important.
