Featuring some wonderful, seasonal landscape, wildlife and farming photographs, funds raised from the calendar will will be donated to Champion Bowland which is a small charity working to enhance the outstanding landscape of the area.

It does this by raising funds from visitor donations and charitable activity and these funds are then awarded to local projects which benefit the environment, local communities and visitors. The charity has its own website - www.championbowland.org.uk – which features details of some of the work it has supported in the past.
