Some 400 carefully edited high quality images supplied as high resolution image files on DVD to trustees to be passed on to guests as gifts and for their personal use and on social media but also used as publicity to help promote the work of the charity. Have now been booked already for next year’s event and also covering the charity’s 10th Anniversary Family Fun Day, Queen’s Park, Bolton May 24th.

This is what key organising trustee, Wendy Hutchins, who hired me, had to say about my work:-

“Wipe Your Tears is a children’s charity supporting seriously and terminally ill children and their families in the UK. We approached John Coxon of John Coxon Photography.com  with a request for him to photograph a fundraising evening in aid of Wipe Your Tears. John very kindly agreed to work the evening. From the moment John was booked his professionalism and profound knowledge of what would be needed on the evening was outstanding and impressive to say the very least. On the evening itself John arrived all geared up and raring to go with his infectious enthusiasm that can only leave you in awe of how happy he was to be doing a job he so greatly loves and is passionate about.

Working the crowd as if he were everyone’s  best friend, which he was by the time he left, he managed to get the most photo shy of guests to pose and enjoy themselves with the camera. At the opposite end of the spectrum John managed to capture the whole atmosphere with the unaware shots of guests who were at times emotional, reflective and in deep thought. He did an outstanding job” All the photographs were of an exceptional high quality and John is highly regarded and recommended by Wipe Your Tears and we will have no hesitation in using his services for our future events.”
