An online charity photographic exhibition is returning for a second year in support of Hertfordshire Community Foundation (HCF) to raise funds to help grassroots charities and voluntary groups in the county.

Local amateur photographers have donated photos of landscapes and landmarks of Hertfordshire.

Photos to Herts in Focus includes pictures of the Berkhamsted water tower and the stunning countryside in St Albans.

A panel selected 30 photographs to be published, one a day, during October on the Herts in Focus’ social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The prints will be available to be purchase on the exhibition’s website.

Money raised from the sale of the photographic prints will be donated to HCF which provides grants to families in crisis, grassroots charities and voluntary groups, helping some of Hertfordshire's most vulnerable residents and addressing deprivation in the county.

Henrietta Buxton, HCF ambassador and exhibition coordinator said: “This year’s online exhibition is a visual journey through the beauty of Hertfordshire through the eyes of talented local amateur photographers.

"We were delighted with the response to last year’s exhibition and we are grateful to everyone who supported it by buying a print.

"We hope that once again the people of Hertfordshire will help to improve the lives of those struggling by supporting this exhibition.

"All profit go to Hertfordshire Community Foundation and they make a wonderful Christmas gift.”

Helen Gray, foundation director for Hertfordshire Community Foundation said: “We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the photographers who have so generously provided these stunning photos and for everyone who has expressed an interest in purchasing prints.

"The collection showcases the beauty we enjoy in our county.

"Sadly, everyone’s experience of life in Hertfordshire isn’t always beautiful or easy and people are struggling through serious social issues in every part of our county, with many issues exacerbated by Covid-19.

"Monies raised through the sale of prints will help HCF to make Hertfordshire a better place, for everyone.”

Prints cost £60 and are printed A4 and mounted and framed in a 30cm x 40cm frame. To find out more about the exhibition visit www.hertsinfocus.com.
