Those helped by Bideford charity Harbour have created a calendar to help raise valuable funds.

VULNERABLE adults in Bideford have put their photography skills to use to create a calendar to raise money for the Harbour day centre.

Retired teacher Andrew Tregoning, deputy chairman of Harbour, led a photography and IT class to help members of the charity put the calendar together.

Mr Tregoning said: “Making the calendar has been a really positive experience for all involved and the members have gained tremendously in confidence.

“The people who come to Harbour often have nowhere else to turn - and the sad fact is the numbers needing our help keep increasing.

“Selling these calendars is just one of the ways we are raising money to ensure this vital service can continue.”

The Bideford-based charity offers a range of services to homeless and vulnerable people as well as training people back into work.
