Get Snap Happy for Charity Train Calender

 in Shrewsbury Local rail company, Wrexham & Shropshire is calling on budding photographers of all ages to put their talents to the test, and win the chance to contribute photos to the company’s first ever charity calendar for 2011.

The lucky overall winner will not only have their photo displayed in the charity calendar, but also on the prized front cover. They will also win a pair of first class tickets for a trip to London. The remaining eleven winners whose photos are selected to feature in the calendar will also receive a classic Wrexham & Shropshire mug.

Jo Phillips, Marketing Executive at Wrexham & Shropshire, said: “Our trains run direct between Wrexham, Shropshire, the West Midlands and London Marylebone.  So, whether you’re planning a day trip or a weekend away, you might as well pack your camera and get snap happy!  After all, it’s for a great cause.”

The company has supported the Railway Children charity, which supports 12 million street children living in poor conditions in India, since it launched a direct service to London Marylebone back in 2008. The calendar will be available to purchase on trains from late Autumn for just £10 (or by mail order for £12).  For each calendar sold, 50p will go directly to the charity to support their essential work.

Wrexham & Shropshire is keen to see creative shots of its trains - from anywhere along the route – on stations, or perhaps on-board or including staff – and preferably showing off the company’s distinctive branding.
