Highland Hospice has said a huge thank you to Ffordes Photographic Ltd, near Beauly, for generously donating a new Canon EOS R50 creative kit (as part of Ffordes' celebration of 5 years of Canon EOS R system) to the charity’s Communications Team.
Communications Manager Wendy Morgan explained, “We were looking for a new camera to help us film better quality videos to highlight our services and stories from those who have experienced our care.”
“Alister Bowie not only shared his expert advice but later, offered to donate the kit, worth £839, to the Hospice. On top of this, a lovely lady had visited Ffordes wishing proceeds of her late husband’s camera equipment also to be donated to charity, and used to purchase something photography-related. This gave us an extra £400 to purchase accessories including a tripod, memory card and camera bag.”
“We can’t thank Alister and this lady enough for their generosity.”
Alister Bowie commented, “We are delighted to help and support such a great local charity through photography."
"Photography can be a way of helping each other through life. Using your creative ability in this art form can get you out and about, walking about, talking about and making your image. This all helps to produce endorphins, which in itself reduce life's stress and strains.”
“Many of our customers comment that the shop is like an Aladdin’s cave and can’t believe we are one of only five cameras shops left in Scotland, tucked away in the countryside of the Highlands and celebrating 63 years in business this year.”
