Springhill Hospice Calendar Competition 2016

Springhill Hospice Rochdale Launch of the Hospice’s 2016 Calendar

On Thursday 27th August Springhill Hospice launched the 2016 version of its iconic calendar. Each year the calendar is illustrated with 13 photographs taken in all four seasons across the whole of the Borough.  The photographs are selected by means of an open photographic competition and the best of the submitted photographs takes pride of place on the calendar cover.  At the launch the winning photographs were disclosed and a photograph showing dragon boat racing on Hollingworth Lake, taken by Lynda Redfern was revealed as the best photograph.  

From next week the calendar will be on sale in the Hospice, its charity shops and in many other venues.  The 2015 calendar raised over £10,000 to help run the Hospice and its community services.

The Hospice is already planning the 2017 calendar and at the launch details of the photographic competition were released.  The closing date for entries is the 31st March 2016.  The Hospice particularly wants to see photographs that record local events throughout the year and throughout the Borough.
