Burcin, Deputy Manager Youth Worker worked with five of her Photography Club members, aged 9-11 to create a fundraiser for BBC's Children in Need.

The group, who are all learning photography skills with Burcin, invited their families into St Andrew's Club and took their portraits for Christmas cards in return for a donation to BBC Children in Need, raising nearly £100.

They set up a small studio in the Club and took five family portraits, taking it in turns to adjust the lighting for each other's shots.


This was a newly formed photography group, so it was great experience for them to learn about portrait taking. They had some help from some of the older Club members, but that in itself was great team work.

In return for their inspired fundraiser, the group were invited to the live show of BBC Children in Need at Kidzania, where they had fun seeing some of behind the scenes of this amazing BBC production, as well as have fun within Kidzania.
