Celebrating World Photography Day!
Celebrate World Photography Day with us and take a look through some of the photos from across the Trust this year
As today is World Photography Day in this article, we wanted to highlight some of the photos from across different Trust departments in 2022. Explaining what we do here at the Trust is always difficult due to the variety of programmes we have on offer. With some of our programmes beginning at the age of 16 months through to 65 years old, we are able to tell our stories through photography and film.
In May the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra visited our Friday evening Community Engagement session at Gunnersbury Park where participants, parents and staff all had the chance to try out various instruments and were then invited to answer some questions based on what football meant to them and why they think football is so popular around the world – https://www.instagram.com/p/CdYuGkgKWCZ/
