Members of the public came to visit their local IPPA photographer, Corin Bishop, at Athlone’s Town Centre and Grovelands Childcare Facilities. They had a professional portrait taken for just €25. All the IPPA photographers nationwide were involved in this event and provided their services free of charge, so all of the money raised will go towards the goal of raising €60,000 for a much needed incubator for the neo-natal unit at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.

In addition to helping raise the essential funds, everyone who participated received a beautifully presented portrait. Furthermore, a selection of portrait images taken on the day will be selected and featured in a 2010 calendar and sold nationwide at €10 each with all proceeds of sales again going to contributing to the goal fund of €60,000.

Here at Corin Bishop Photography Athlone we raised over €3,000! Prizes were kindly sponsored by local and national business. The winners can be spotted in the Happy Faces webpage here.
