Plymstock Camera Club Sweetens the Deal with Friary Mill Bakery

Plymstock Camera Club recently embarked on a delicious and rewarding partnership with Friary Mill Bakery, a beloved Plymouth institution established in 1988 by Philip Gardner and Karen Milner. This collaboration provided a unique opportunity for club members to showcase their talents and contribute to the visual appeal of Friary Mill's delectable offerings, enjoyed across their 13 stores throughout the city.

The club members embraced a hands-on approach during a dedicated photography session at the club. Cameras clicked and flashed captured the essence of Friary Mill's diverse product range, with the enticing aroma of freshly baked goods adding a delightful sensory element to the creative process.

From this impressive pool of photographs, Heather Compton's work emerged as the standout selection. Heather's exceptional skills and keen eye for detail effectively captured the essence of Friary Mill's products, making her the perfect choice to represent the club and elevate the bakery's online presence.

Heather's captivating images will soon grace Friary Mill's website and various promotional materials, whetting the appetites of customers and showcasing the bakery's commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

In a heartwarming gesture of appreciation, Friary Mill offered compensation to Heather for her outstanding contribution. However, exemplifying the club's commitment to its members and the wider community, Heather generously donated the entire amount back to the Plymstock Camera Club.

"We are incredibly proud of Heather's accomplishment and her selfless act of giving back to the club," said Matt Curtin, Chairman of the Plymstock Camera Club. "This partnership with Friary Mill, a highly respected local employer, has been a rewarding experience for our members. It allowed them to apply their skills in a real-world setting and contribute to the success of a cherished local business."

This successful collaboration highlights the valuable role the Plymstock Camera Club plays in fostering creativity, supporting its members, and strengthening the bonds within the Plymouth community.
