I was asked to be the photographer at a charity bike ride called ‘Bucket and Spade’. Locals ride from Southport to Blackpool and back again to raise money for a good cause. When they asked me to do the Southport photography I thought ‘why not’, I want to help out for a good cause and to be an active member in the community.
The images were to be used in the local paper and to feature in a magazine ‘Simply Southport’, the charity organizers were very happy with the results as was I. It was a challenge as it was a very hot summers day and I was only taking pictures, the riders did find it harder to ride in such heat but there was some stops along the way, it is the taking part that counts.
