PHOTOGRAPHY students from a Suffolk school have used their impressive skills to capture 12 stunning images from round the world for a calendar which will raise funds for Palliative Care East.

The collection of pictures provided by A-level and GCSE students from St Felix School, Reydon, are featured in a 2009 calendar which is now on sale.

It provides a mix of scenes from kite flying in China and snow covered mountains in France to a forest scene in Dunwich Woods and a tranquil harbour setting in Southwold.

The arts committee at the James Paget University Hospital, at Gorleston, awarded a prize for best photograph to Lauren Keegan who received a £25 voucher for her picture of Southwold Harbour.

Ian Walker, chair of the arts committee, said the quality and diversity of subjects covered by the students was exceptional.

Lesley Roberts, head of photography at the school, said the students had enjoyed compiling the project and had learnt more about the appeal by meeting with governors at the hospital.

It is the third art-related project the school has undertaken with the James Paget over the past few years.

The picture shows some of the sixth form pupils in the school's photography corridor who took the photos in the calendar, together with adults involved in the project. From left, standing, Emil Evans-Stickland, Dennis Cave, a governor of the James Paget, Annette Stannard, non-executive director of the hospital, Ms Roberts, Joe Mclean, and in front Poppy Harper and Andrea Vale.

The calendar is £5 and available from the foyer at the James Paget, St Felix School, Colleen and Clare in Southwold, Norton and Peskett Solicitors offices in Lowestoft, Beccles and Yarmouth, and Karpet Kingdom in Lowestoft. All profits will be donated to the appeal.

Meanwhile, organisers of an evening with Rick Wakeman which raised £11,000 for the Palliative Care East appeal have presented a cheque to staff at the James Paget University Hospital, where the centre will be built.

Appeal co-ordinator Jenny Westgate accepted it from Gerda Gibbs, Macmillan palliative care nurse specialist; appeal patron Michael Musket; Haven Rotary president Robert Parker; Ian Thompson; appeal patron Ian McCreadie; Mike Butcher, of Haven Rotary; and Rachel Sullivan, palliative care secretary.

And The Journal has also contributed to the fund raising scheme with £775.86 being handed over to Ms Westage by senior reporter Louisa Kennard and editorial assistant Rhonda Deal.

The money was the proceeds from this year's Journal Carnival Queen selection evening held at the Marina Theatre, in Lowestoft.

The Mia Lucy Rose Coffee Shop, on the High Street, Gorleston, is selling Christmas cards with proceeds going towards the appeal.

Donations can be sent by post to the James Paget Healthcare NHS Trust Palliative Care Appeal, Palliative Care Team, Lowestoft Road, Gorleston, NR31 6LA. Cheques should be made payable to Palliative Care East.

Donations can be made online at www.palliative-care-east.org.uk
