Lockdown Doorstep Fundraiser 2020

May 07, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

If you have followed me for a while, you will know that I absolutely love to help raising money for charities and do my bit for the community. From endless vouchers to raise money at raffles, to helping my lovely friends Alex and Sarah raise money for their chosen charities for the London Marathon, I wanted to play my part in helping our wonderfully amazing NHS heroes in our time of need. This pandemic has taken over and it has been such a scary time, I wanted to raise some joy in the community and bring a little normality back to people's lives. After chatting to the wonderful Steph at SL Photography I joined in on the Lock down Doorstop photo shoots to raise money for the NHS Charities Together fund.

I cannot begin to tell you what a whirlwind this journey has been. I have been so lucky to meet some new faces and also capture my very loyal clients and friends. I have never been so busy in my life. It has been hard work, I'm not going to lie. To the endless messages, working out routes, the walking to houses, the cycling! In the past two days I've done over 30 miles to people's doorsteps. Thank goodness for the lovely weather we have been experiencing. The hours and hours of editing to make sure these memories are perfect for you and your families. But my hardwork is nothing compared to what our keyworkers have been going through. I couldn't imagine how they are doing their 14 hour shifts, the heartbreak, the pain, the being away from their families. So all this money that I have raised along with other photographers is so so important to protect our NHS.

I wanted to come on and write this blog post to say thank you. Thank you for all the support. Thank you for all the donations.Thank you for all the treats!! (I've received cheesecakes, mini eggs, champagne, all sorts it's been lovely!) It has been ever so lovely getting out into the community and hearing everyone's Lockdown experiences. This is (hopefully) a once in a lifetime experience that we have to go through and we have ALL done it together. So enjoy these Lockdown photoshoots, enjoy the memories. Keep them in your time capsules, print them and frame them proudly in your homes, get them out years later and look back at the time we couldn't leave our homes.

I hope you've enjoyed these as much as I have and once again thank you, and stay safe!

Lots of love,

Charlotte
