Sale Community Called On To Support Local Charity

The Sale (M33) community has been asked to support a fun initiative, which will see keen photographers get involved as well as raising funds for local charity, Sale Festival.


‘Snapshots of Sale’ is the idea from Janine (Promoting Trafford) and Sale-based photographer, Julie Harris.


After Sale Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, both Janine and Julie wanted to support the committee of volunteers, as well as build upon the fantastic Sale community to help encourage people to get out and about and feel proud of where they live.  As well as having some fun, the initiative will also be raising funds for Sale Festival with the sales of a calendar from the winning entries.
