Jane Roebuck Carers Awards 2017

Jane Roebuck Carers Awards 2017

On Wednesday 25th January 2017 The Jane Roebuck Carers Awards were held at Barton Hall, Kettering, Northamptonshire, with over 100 people in attendance. This was the fifth year that I was asked to be the official event photographer, and it’s an event I enjoy enormously, and also find incredibly humbling.

Staggeringly there are over 70,000 known carers just in the county of Northants alone, each providing a vital role in supporting vulnerable people to live in the community. It has been estimated that carers throughout the UK save the state an estimated £132 billion a year.

The awards not only recognise the commitment and selfless hard work of carers across Northamptonshire, but also offer an opportunity for the award winners to enjoy a special afternoon, dedicated solely to them, in the beautiful location of Barton Hall.

Event photography always calls for a variety of different styles on the day, and as well as photographing the official presentations and a large group shot for the next morning’s press release, I also spent some time capturing more natural, candid shots of people enjoying themselves. A few days after the event I supplied the organisers mounted prints for each award winner, which they will pass on to them so that they have a lasting memory of their special day.
