Gloucester Services has opened a colourful photography exhibition to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of community partner Play Gloucestershire.
The exhibition has been curated by the Play Gloucestershire team and features a collection of images of the charity at work; aiming to give visitors to Gloucester Services an understanding of the charity’s fantastic achievements in the community.
Play Gloucestershire provides regular, free play sessions in urban parks and rural locations across the county throughout the year, whatever the weather. Since 2007, they have taken local children on over 100,000 play visits, in 84 communities.
The gallery space is installed in Gloucester Services Northbound in one the busiest positions in the Services.
Katie Jefferies from Play Gloucestershire explains: “It’s great to be working with Gloucester Services thanks to their partnership with Gloucestershire Gateway Trust. It gives us the opportunity to shout about the work Play Gloucestershire does within the community. We’re a small charity and the opportunity to tell visitors about what we’re doing in a fun way is really valuable for us.”
Gloucester Services was created as a unique partnership with local regeneration charity, Gloucestershire Gateway Trust. The partnership is not just about charitable donations; it is a more fundamental way of connecting business and community for the benefit of both.
Mark Gale, Gloucestershire Gateway Trust’s CEO, explains; “It’s another great way to be able to show the work that’s being done within the community and let visitors to Gloucester Services know that when they spend in the Services, they’re putting back into the local community.”
The exhibition will remain at Gloucester Services for several months.
