As a business we do as much as we can to help local charities including capturing images for publicity like the Stars Appeal Breast Cancer Unit Campaign, Lucy’s Days Out events, taking part in fundraising and more recently attending and capturing both formal and partybooth images with our portable studio at The Stones Hotel for the Sunflower Ball.
The Ball itself was organised by Baz and Jan Burns, and their daughter Izzie to raise funds for SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) In memory of their son Charlie Burns, who sadly died when he suffered two seizures within days of each other in October 2011.
His condition was unknown to anyone because up until four days before he died, he was an apparently fit and healthy child.
Since Charlie’s death, his parents and sister have raised an incredible £46,000 with a further £10,000 being raised at the Sunflower Ball - along with awareness of the condition with the majority of funds going to SUDEP Action.
We were so very pleased to be the photographers for Baz and Jan on the evening of the Sunflower Ball and very touched to have received such great feedback from them for our support of their event:
“You were fantastic - 3 little words!!
John Rose Photography kindly offered to support our Sunflower Ball Charity Auction and Ball which was held at the Stones Hotel , High Post, Salisbury on 3 October 15. The night was in memory of our son Charlie Burns who sadly died week after his 10th birthday from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).
The evening was a black tie event with 150 people attending. There was a full packed entertainment pack and of course JRP were there with both formal pictures and a fantastic photo booth.
The evening was a total success with the bar closing at 06:30 on Sunday morning! People are still commenting on the evening and publishing their photos on social media. Thanks to everyone's support the event raised a staggering £10,000.
Thanks for your support and hope to be able to work with you in the new year!!”
