Some photographs from our coverage of the Zumbathon held at the Tesco Superstore in Bury. The client requested images of the Zumba marathon in action, some staged images of the participants and natural photographs throughout the event to be used for internal and external PR purposes.
A bit of a journey for me this one but a pleasant drive up to Cumbria to photograph a ground breaking ceremony in Penrith for Extra Care Housing provider Housing 21. We managed to satisfy all the images on the brief before the rain managed to catch up on us.
The scheme which is being developed by Housing 21 in partnership with Cumbria County Council and Eden District Council, will provide 54 one and two bedroom apartments for affordable rent and shared ownership. The development will offer people over the age of 55 a range of services and facilities including a 24 hour on-site care team for those who need it, a café/bistro, hair salon and communal lounge which is also available to the local community. The development, located off Newton Road, is set for completion in March 2021.
