Wildlife through the lens: ADAS holds charity photo competition

July 04, 2020

Employees at ADAS (an RSK company) in Rosemaund, UK, recently held a photo competition to raise money for the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust, which cares for 55 nature reserves, works with partners to create living landscapes and helps to inspire people of all ages to discover and care for wildlife in Herefordshire, UK. With all the excellent entries now in, it is time to share the winners.

In March 2020, the ADAS team asked employees to get their cameras out and capture photographs of animals and woods and submit an entry into two photo categories: Wildlife and Forests. With many budding photographers in the office, there was a great response and a total of 39 entries were received. After some tough decision making, first, second and third places for each category were decided by a popular vote, and we are delighted to finally reveal the winners!

Congratulations to Robyn Gibbons and Robert Williams, who were each awarded first prize for their picturesque images of coastal pine trees (for the Forests category) and cows in a meadow (for the Wildlife category). Other prizes went to Emily Naylor, Tom Millward, Robert Williams and Katy Hammersley for their entries.

Prizes include a year’s membership to the Hereford Wildlife Trust, hedgehog boxes and bird boxes made by Robert Williams, and bird feeders.

In total, the event raised an excellent £132.50 for the trust, smashing the team’s original target of £75.

Special thanks go to Katy Hammersley and Lauren Hall for organising the event, and Robert Williams for making the prizes.
