Charity Photo Competition
« on: December 05, 2018, 13:23:17 »



Just for fun at this time of year and a change from our normal competitions.

The subject is quite simply "CHRISTMAS"

I will donate £25.00p to the winner's choice of charity as a reward.

Hopefully we will have some lovely seasonal pictures to choose from.

Entries to be in by end of the day on the 18th of December please.

Either send me a pm with your picture or email to me at ramjamman at hotmail dot com (make sure you include your user name if using email please)

What a great up-cheering idea, daveyboi!  Yes please!
I was going to say I'd chip in too, then thought perhaps no, as that just puts unfair pressure on anyone who is struggling at the moment in the run-up to Christmas, and it's much more important that as many of us as possible put in an entry.  Also I wouldn't want to commit to donating to a charity and then find out it is the "West country retired home for snails" or similar! So i'll wait and see, but will definitely submit a photo.

Snails I wouldn't mind but hopefully isn't slugs :)

Although some slugs are quite beautifully colored

I was thinking of reviving our secret santa again this year but I did not think we now have enough regular users to make it work so decided to do this instead.

Very grey and wet here so no chance of any photos.  Stying in and keeping warm and dry is the order of the day.

Maybe be inventive like a pile of oranges with some tinsel around them or a few Christmas cards and a mince pie
A pet with a Christmas tag etc.

Even a Bah Humbug maybe  :happy7: :happy7:

The Christmas theme was used in the broadest sense and not specific to allotments or outdoors  :toothy10: :toothy10:
