Guild member Stu Leggett organises photo comp for dementia sufferers12 April 2011
Guild member Stu Leggett has started a photography club for those with dementia. He takes suffers around country parks and museums at every opportunity. Apart from the fresh air and exercise he hopes sufferers benefit from improved hand-eye co-ordination and spacial awareness as a result of taking photographs. He has gone so far as to organise an exhibition of their work last month which attracted many visitors. The entries were very expressive and imaginative and awards were given to what was judged to be the best work. Throughout he has been supported by his very enthusiastic local camera club in Dudley....It's a great a example of a Guild member giving back to the community. Well done Stu & Dudley camera club - A great initiative!
