Punks Print Available With Profits Going To The Trussell Trust
Inspired by the monumental success of the Italian 100 Fotografi per Bergamo initiative and the New York-based Pictures for Elmhurst, Photographs for The Trussell Trust are getting together a photographic print sale fundraiser here in the UK.
100% of the profits will go towards the Trussell Trust, which provides support to 2/3 of the food banks nationwide, helping those who have been largely affected by the economic and social crisis as a consequence of the Covid-19 health emergency.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a swift and devastating impact on the ability of vulnerable people to access sufficient food. Three weeks into lockdown, The Food Foundation said that 1.5 million Britons reported not eating for a whole day because they had no money or access to food.
Food banks have seen 300% increase in footfall compared to this time last year and desperately need our support in this time of social crisis.
Some of the photographers taking part include: Agnes Lloyd-Platt, Angelo Pennetta, Ben Toms, Brett Lloyd, Clementine Schneidermann, Dick Jewell, Eloise Parry, Ewen Spencer, Hanna Moon, Gareth McConnell, Jack Davison, Jamie Morgan, Jeremy Deller, Julie Greve, Lynette Garland, Karen Knorr, Mark Lebon, Mark Power, Martin Parr, Mitra Tabrizian, Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Olivier Richon, Rosie Marks, Sarah Jones, Senta Simond, Simon Roberts, Sharna Osborne, Stephen Gill, Tom Johnson and Tyrone Lebon.
