Our Happiness Calendar Competition winners announced

Our Happiness Calendar Competition winners announced

Date: 31 August 2021 | By: paul

We’re delighted to announce the winners of our first ever photographic charity calendar, which was launched in memory of one of our valued and much-missed volunteer peer mentors, Brian Hill.

The theme for the calendar is ‘happiness’ as chosen by Brian’s family. All of the money raised from sales will go towards supporting other patients with kidney disease, through our Paul Popham peer support service.

We would like to thank everyone who entered. Our competition went worldwide with entries from as far afield as Australia. We had so many fantastic entries the judges found it extremely difficult to pick a winner and deliberated for several hours before making a final decision.

We are thrilled to declare our overall winner is Angharad Woozley, whose entry will take the cover slot on the calendar. She also wins a personal photoshoot with professional photographer, Lucy Parker, to the value of £300.

Our other winners who will appear inside the calendar (some will appear in multiple months) and receive a copy of the calendar are:

  • Belinda Ahmed
  • Rachel Rimmer
  • Angharad Woozley
  • Grace Birt
  • Monique Golley
  • Ross Evans
  • Hannah Bowden
  • Melissa Ferreira
  • Megan Bivens

Angharad Woozley, calendar competition overall winner, said:

“When Anna from the Paul Popham Fund called, I was completely shocked that I won the Calendar Competition. I entered this photograph into the competition because I felt it captured the theme of Happiness. For me, Happiness is Freedom and this is portrayed in the backdrop and my elation to reach the top.”

Anna Powell, our children and youth community engagement officer, added:

“It was an absolute privilege to work on this project and I was able to meet Brian’s family which made it even more special. The final selection of photographs capture all aspects of happiness and I can’t wait to see the finished product.”

The calendar will be available to pre-order on our website from September and more details on how you can do this will be published via our website and social media.
