The Orpington 1st calendar for 2020 is now available from Orpington library in exchange for donations to Bromley Homeless Shelter.
The sixth Orpington 1st Calendar features shots taken at town centre events alongside selected entries into the Orpington Photography Competition 2019.
The competition encourages residents to take a celebratory look at their surroundings and invites budding or more accomplished photographers to send in their snaps taken anywhere within a BR5 or BR6 postcode location. This year's winner was selected as Stephen Sangster whose photo of Orpington Library takes pride of place on the front cover. The judging panel was impressed by the light and tone of the shot of a recognisable location in the heart of the town centre.
Calendars are available from Orpington Library in exchange for donations. Proceeds will go to Bromley Homeless Shelter as part of the Loose Change For Real Change scheme launched earlier this year. Homeless Link, the national membership charity for organisations working with the homeless, reports estimates of a 165% increase in rough sleeping since 2010.
The suggested minimum donation is £2 but please give as generously as you are able to this imporatant cause.
