The search is on for ‘amazing partnerships’ in Bradley Stoke

Budding photographers in Bradley Stoke are being invited to take a picture that best illustrates an amazing partnership.

The competition has been launched by Specsavers in Bradley Stoke, in partnership with Pentax Cameras, to raise awareness of Specsavers’ national charity partner, Guide Dogs.

Guide Dogs supporter, the Rt Hon David Blunkett MP, said:

“I’ve first-hand experience of how valuable each of my guide dogs has been. As an aid to mobility, as a support in providing independence and as a companion, they have provided for me the opportunity to work and live on equal terms with others. Quite simply, a guide dog for many blind people is a liberation and an essential aid in building the confidence that we all need to live our lives to the full.”

Edward Stanleigh, store director at Specsavers in Bradley Stoke, said:

“An amazing partnership can come in many forms, whether that’s an act of kindness, a helping hand or a sign of encouragement. This can be between friends, family or even between pets and their owners. You can really let your imagination run wild and show your creativity to represent the Central England region at the national exhibition in London.”

A total of ten regional winners will be selected to win a Pentax Digital SLR (KX Digital SLP) camera worth more than £500 and a £150 worth of Specsavers vouchers. Each winner, plus one guest, will also receive an all expenses paid trip to London to attend the press launch of the Amazing Partnerships exhibition by renowned photographer Adrian Houston, at the Haunch of Venison Gallery in London, where each winning image will be on display.

To enter the photography competition please visit Specsavers in Bradley Stoke or email your entry to amazingpartnerships@beattiegroup.com.

The Amazing Partnerships competition aims to raise awareness of the important role played by Guide Dogs and to develop the partnership between Guide Dogs and Specsavers, which launched in October last year. Specsavers stores across the UK have pledged to raise £250,000 to fund and train 25 new guide dog puppies.
