Partnering with COPE

Responding to an invitation by Kate Bielska from COPE Foundation, Noreen B, Melanie, Patricia, Geoff and Simon had a quick introductory meeting with six members of the Foundation on the morning of Thursday 7th. They were a very enthusiastic group, full of good humour and well up to the challenges we set for them.

Accompanied by Kate, eleven of us set off for a two hour Photo Shoot around Clonakilty, and in lovely autumnal weather, we photographed the town from Emmet Square to Astna Square and everything in between. We had great fun.

Kate will download all the images and one or two of us will meet her to sift through them with a view to printing a selection for an in-house exhibition in the near future.
It was a very successful outing and one which we should definitely repeat.
