National Portrait Week for LauraLynn

Posted on March 25, 2015 by DesignWorks Photography under Baby, News, Portraits, Special Offers

Help us raise funds for LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice

It’s that time of year again! For a donation of just €25, you can have a portrait of yourself, your child, your granny, your dog – in fact, just about anyone!

National Portrait Week has sicked off this year and we are once again taking part. This year all the proceeds will go to LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice. National Portrait Week is an annual, nationwide fundraising project run by the Irish Professional Photographers Association (IPPA) every March-April in which members of the public receive a free individual mini-portrait session and gift print from their local IPPA photographer in return for a donation to that year’s chosen charity.

It’s a wonderful cause and we’re thrilled to be doing this again – this will be our ninth year volunteering and we’ve raised a lot of money for a lot of great charities over the years thanks to the support of our wonderful clients and local people. We have several events this year located in Swords, Skerries and Drogheda to make it easier for people to participate.

We’ve already had our first event in Swords Pavilions last Sunday and met lots of lovely people with super cute kids who we were honoured to photograph in aid of LauraLynn!

All portraits must be of individuals only, but as a thank you for taking part we are giving a gift of a voucher for family shoot at our studio worth €50 to everyone who participates. We also will photograph groups and families in mini sessins at our studio, by appointment only, between the dates of March 31st and April 4th. In line with the national rules, your complimentary portrait must be of an individual, but you are welcome to purchase additional family portraits at reduced rates for a limited time.

Our next event is this coming Saturday (March 28th) at DesignWorks Photography Studio. No appointment is necessary, just pop along on the day.  We are then at Scotch Hall Shopping Centre on Sat. 11th Apr, again no booking is necessary.

LauraLynn is Ireland’s ONLY Children’s hospice – Caring for children with life limiting conditions and their families by providing home support, respite, crisis , transitional and end-of-life care. Tragically, there are over 1,400 children living in Ireland with life limiting conditions and 350 of these children pass away each year, most within their first year of life.

With NO government funding for their hospice services, LauraLynn relies entirely on the generosity of fundraisers to keep their hospice doors open. They need to raise €2.9M annually to continue providing these services with additional funding needed to roll out their LauraLynn@HOME programme nationwide. This will provide nursing care for very sick children in the comfort of their own home.
