Age UK North Shropshire Supporters’ 2022 calendar, Shropshire Borders, features stunning photographs of the area taken by local people. The images include scenes of the Meres, canals and meadows in North Shropshire whilst animal lovers are provided for with some outstanding pictures of donkeys, dogs, cats, lambs and even a dragonfly in all its exquisite detail.

The photographs are the winning entries in a fundraising competition organized by Age UK North Shropshire Supporters during lockdown. The top three local prize winners were Ruth Elner, Fiona Evans and Kathryn Goddard.

The calendars retail at £5 and are available from a number of Ellesmere outlets and the Age UK office in Shrewsbury. They will also be on sale at St Oswald’s Church, Oswestry, and St Mary’s Church, Shrewsbury, when the charity Christmas card shops open later in the year.

Anne Wignall, Chair of the group, said: “We are very grateful to the local businesses who have kindly offered us space to sell the charity calendars. We hope that generous local supporters will consider buying the calendars for themselves, their friends or family – they will make great Christmas gifts!”

Profits will support the vital work of Age UK in the north of the county at what continues to be a challenging time for older people.
