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.
