A PHOTOGRAPHY project started during the pandemic raised additional funds for charity when the photographer decided to resurrect the project in December.

Doorstep Snaps was the brain-child of Salisbury photographer Simon Ward and he decided kick-start the project for just one month to see if he could raise additional funds for charity. 

He raised £890 bringing the grand total raised through Doorstep Snaps to £7,347. 

Simon said: "I’m delighted that Doorsteps achieved another milestone by exceeding £7,000 by Christmas Eve.

‘Thanks so much to everyone who took part and joined in with the fun whilst raising money for two fantastic local charities.  Lots of new families took part for the first time plus some families who have taken part four or five times previously. 

He added: "Doorstep Snaps is now put to bed for another year and will return next December so long as people still want to take part."
