Photo exhibition celebrates local people, spotlights their experiences during the pandemic, and spreads hope

Photo exhibition celebrates local people, spotlights their experiences during the pandemic, and spreads hope

During August, our Community Investment staff teamed-up with 19-year-old Milly Stanworth- a local photographer who’d been recommended to us by a member of the Sabden Growers group. 

The goal? To create something that’d celebrate local people, spotlight their experiences during the pandemic, and spread a hopeful message by showcasing their aspirations going forward.

Spot anyone you know?

After debuting in-person at the Sabden Growing site (Johnson Fold), positive reactions from residents made it clear we’d need to ‘digitalise’ the exhibition so more of you could experience it. We hope you enjoy it as much as local residents did.

All of the images in this album were captured by Milly and are accompanied by each residents’/groups’ stories, which were collected by Danielle and Demi from our Community Investment Team. 

Thanks to everyone that’d contributed to the exhibition. Fantastic work all round.
