Easter Egg Collection
Collecting Easter Eggs on behalf of St Oswald's Hospice.
After the enormous success of last years Easter Collection, we're reaching out to Quorum staff to arrange a collection on behalf of St Oswald's Children's Hospice.
Some donations will be included in an Easter Raffle that will raise even more money for children at the Hospice.
Drop donations off at the hub before Friday 16th Feb.
Some of the children who benefit from St Oswald's care can have medical issues that mean they are unable to consume chocolate - any other Easter themed gifts you'd like to donate are welcome.
We also share the Easter eggs with hospice siblings who also benefit from a boost in hard times.

Light In The Lens: A Photograghic Angle Exhibition

A Light In The Lens.
Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography”
There are many facets of photography that combine to enable the photographer to take a successful photograph. Some are more important than others. But one aspect is absolutely essential, for without light, photography itself would not exist. Light is the foundation of every photograph ever taken. It gives shape, texture and colour to our images. It allows us to create a certain mood or atmosphere and determines how the shot will look, and the message that it will convey.
Many photographers spend hours chasing the light, in search of the perfect conditions that will allow them to capture not only a snapshot but a powerful and evocative image. They often swear by the so-called “golden hour” as the time of day with the best lighting. Referring to the first hour of light after sunrise and the last hour of light before sunset, the golden hour is when the sun is low in the sky, producing a soft, diffused light. Portraits, landscapes and still life benefit in particular from this special light.
Whatever the scene that you wish to capture through your view finder, without the right light you will have difficulty producing an image that is inspiring, dramatic and above all impactful.
The images that feature in this exhibition all explore the effect that light can have on the outcomes of photographic pursuits. Some examine the interplay of light and shadow, others the use of highlights, contrast and saturation. Some experiment with long exposure in order to paint with light. What all these photographs have in common is the way in which the light has transformed each image into something dramatic and special.
“I am forever chasing light. Light turns the ordinary into the magical” Trent Parke
