Vanessa and Andy placed the winning bid at a charity auction in St Columba’s College last year. The proceeds of the auction went to  Harpenden Spotlight on Africa a great charity supporting local initiatives to alleviate poverty in Sub Saharan Africa. Recent projects from this charity include raising the necessary funding for the continued running of a school in Musuto, a village near Mbale in Uganda.

I met up with Vanessa and Andy’s family earlier this year for a photo session at their beautiful home, the last family session they had was years ago, before their youngest son was born so it was time to update the pictures on their walls.
