Children North East exhibition launches at John Lewis Eldon Square!

Shoppers and diners at John Lewis Eldon Square will be treated to an exhibition of photographs from Children North East supporters, as a display of our photography competition winners goes up in-store this week!

The images of North East landscapes and wildlife were chosen from over 200 entries to be featured in our 2022 fundraising calendar, which is currently on sale from our online shop.

Situated on the second floor in the ‘The Place to Eat café, exhibition visitors will be treated to a mix of inspiring images. If you head down, expect to see snaps of our region’s beautiful coastline, close-ups of nature, and a snow-topped Jesmond Dene.

Winners of the photography competition were chosen by a team of judges, made up of Leigh Elliott, our Chief Executive; Denise Wray, Partnership and Community Coordinator at John Lewis & Partners; photographer James Fortune; and the FAB (Fabulous and Brilliant) Group, a collective of young people with disabilities who meet at our Young People Services.

Billie Jenkins, Marketing and Communications Manager at Children North East commented, “It has been very exciting to have John Lewis support our work by gifting us this fantastic space, which we are using to celebrate our supporters and share our fundraising work. We are incredibly grateful for our longstanding relationship with Denise and the team, who have been wonderful collaborators and champions of the charity.”

All proceeds from the 2022 calendar will support babies, children, young people through the most difficult circumstances.

If you can’t make it to the John Lewis Eldon Square store, you can view the winning photographs on our website, or order a copy of the calendar through our shop.
