THE Crediton community is being invited to contribute photographs of the local area to be included in a 2021 calendar which will be sold to raise funds for Devon Air Ambulance and Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust.

RGB Building Supplies is looking to find 12 photographs that celebrate the diverse scenery of the region and is asking people in the area to send in pictures of their favourite places.

From the beautiful Shobrooke Park or the historic Crediton Parish Church, to local wildlife or a hidden gem that deserves to be highlighted, any photo that showcases the area will be considered.

As well as seeing their photo in the calendar, the photographers of each of the chosen 12 images will receive a £100 voucher to spend at their local RGB branch.

Tracy Owen, Fundraising Manager at Devon Air Ambulance, commented: "We are so grateful to our friends at RGB for choosing to support us in their latest fundraising venture!

"We think a calendar is a great idea - our helicopters fly across our beautiful county and its differing terrain daily and the amazing views from the air are often commented on by the aircrew. Our income has been severely affected by the cancellation of countless events so we will be excited to see the final product - we are sure it will be a big success!"

Adrian Borchardt, Branch Manager at RGB Crediton, added: “Our calendar is designed to celebrate the beauty of our region, whilst fundraising for Devon Air Ambulance and Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust at the same time. We look forward to seeing what landmarks, wildlife and scenery are featured in the photos we receive.”

Those wishing to submit a photograph simply need to email it to: [email protected] by Friday, September 11, confirming the location, along with the photographer’s name and contact details.

The entry needs to be landscape orientation and a total of three entries per person will be accepted. Full terms and conditions can be found on: RGB Building Supplies’ website: www.rgbltd.co.uk .
