Firefly Photography, Derby, launches fundraising campaign & support for North Derbyshire based charity, Special Friends
Firefly Photography has launched its fundraising campaign for 2019, empowering its clients to help raise funds for local charity “Special Friends”.
Firefly Photography has promised to donate 100% of proceeds from the sale of their Family Portrait Experience gift voucher for the entire of 2019. Firefly Photography’s owner, James Corbett, said he was thrilled to be pledging his support to this North Derbyshire based charity. “In December we asked our clients to nominate a local charity, that they cared about, so that we could offer donations through the sales of our family portrait gift vouchers” explains James “Special Friends received numerous nominations from clients of ours, who have experienced their help and support over the years so it seemed the perfect choice.”
Special Friends was set up in 2014 by mum, Lucy Sarna, as a monthly meeting group for families with children who have additional needs, including Lucy’s two sons. Lucy’s children have now started school however, due to demand, the group stayed and its popularity has grown so much that it became a registered charity in 2017. “Having a child with additional needs can be extremely isolating and brings many tough challenges to the whole family.” Explains Lucy. “At Special Friends we offer a warm, supportive community, and a wide range of activities that enable us to celebrate our children and live life to the full, for parents, carers, children and siblings alike.” Special Friends plan to celebrate their 5thanniversary with the help and support of Firefly Photography in Derby.
James went on to say “We read so much about supporting independent businesses within our local economy and it is really important that this dedication is there however it’s also important to give back and having Special Friends on board allows us to all work together, from client to business to charity”.
