Aurora Cancer Charity Fashion Show

I’ve been photographing an amazing bunch of people now for the past couple of years and what these people do is nothing short of astonishing.

The Aurora Cancer Charity exists to help and support people and their families who are affected by and living with cancer.  Anyone with a diagnosis receives a free package of support, wellbeing programmes and holistic & beauty treatments to help raise their self-esteem and confidence at one of their local wellbeing centres.

The charity relies on much needed donations and part of it’s fundraising efforts, amongst many other events, is the annual Aurora Fashion Show and the stars of the show are all affected by cancer.  The spectacle is a culmination of months of hard work and dedication, not only from the models, but also the amazing team behind them who put the show together.  From the choreography and the amazing audio visual performance to the individual stories of people going above and beyond, it’s one truly emotive evening.

The show runs for two nights at the Doncaster Dome and this years guests were entertained by the highly acclaimed Rob McVeigh and their regular host and patron Caroline Hodgson.  If you’d like to find out more about the charity please do head over to  their website here.

Doncaster Event Photography – Aurora Cancer Charity

I had the huge honour of being asked to photograph the Aurora Cancer Charity Christmas Ball again this year.  The event is a spectacular finale celebrating all their fundraising efforts over the year and awards are given to some very deserving finalists.

The charity rallies support from the local business community, health care professionals and those affected by cancer either directly or indirectly and monies raised goes towards funding the Aurora Wellbeing Centres.  The centres exist to help anyone with a cancer diagnosis by offering a free package of well-being treatments to help raise their confidence and self-esteem and create a general sense of well being.  More info can be found on their website.

The Christmas Ball was an evening of glitz, glamour and fun with a full three course meal, awards presentations and a lively disco.  Our event Photo Booth proved to be popular once again and many people headed home with a mounted image from our onsite printing team.

If you’d like more information of how our Commercial Event Photography services can add that little extra to your event, whether a Charity or Corporate event, then please do get in touch for further information or see our website.

Weston Park Cancer Hospital “Light the Night” Event with Jessica Ennis_Hill

Back in September I was delighted to be asked to photograph a very special event for a very worthy Charity.  The charity was very close to my heart as it helped in the treatment of my mother when she was fighting bladder cancer a few years ago.  Weston Park Cancer Hospital Charity is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England and is recognised for its work worldwide.  Their profile has been raised further by their list of patrons and recently added the “Face of the 2012 Olympics” – Jessica Ennis-Hill, Sheffield’s very own World Heptathlon Champion and Olympic Gold Medallist.

Their work does come at a price and the charity embarks and a regime of fundraising events throughout the year and it was this years “Light the Night” event which I was asked to photograph.  Jessica Ennis-Hill was their special guest for the evening who was invited to start the event and also meet some of the charity fundraisers.  The evening event turned Ecclesall Woods into a torch-lit woodland wonderland with hundreds of people following the trail.  A video and full photo-gallery can be found on the charity website.  I’m sure they would love to see you at next years event.

It was a huge privilege photographing this event and gave me the opportunity to give a little back to the charity that helped my mother with her battle against cancer.  Sadly she succumbed to the illness in 2006 but with the voluntary efforts of all those involved and the huge amount raised the charity can continue their work for many more that need it.

If you would like more information about our photography check out our website.  If you are a charity and are holding an event or awards ceremony our attendance is very often FREE so please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
