Celebrating community champions – we need your photographs

We’re on the lookout for your photographs as part of this year’s National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) Photography Competition.

The theme and purpose this year is to celebrate the positive work many of our tenants contribute within our communities – either as volunteers, working with local charities or support centres, or as a representative in more formal ways such as; school governments or charitable board members.

There’s lots to celebrate and many of you do outstanding work, which benefits others.

We’re after photographs that capture the nature of your work and the benefit you, as a community champion, bring to your local community.

Please send your photographs via email involvement@starhousing.org.uk or post them to us at: Involvement team, STAR Housing, The Spruce Building, Sitka Drive, Shrewsbury Business Park, Shrewsbury SY2 6LG.

The deadline for submissions is 28 February 2018.
