BAVO awards

Lee Jukes Bridge FM bavo awards

I have had the pleasure of photographing the BAVO awards again this year.
BAVO’s Volunteer Achievement Awards are designed to recognise and honour
outstanding people and organisations that have made a significant contribution to our
community during the past year.

The awards were held at the Heronstone Hotel and compèred by Bridge FM DJ, Lee Jukes.

The event was very well attended with guests including Bridgend councillors, mayors and AM Huw Irranca-Davies sporting his Movember growth.

Everyone that attended the awards were entertained by the Tenovus Cancer Care choir, who deservedly received rapturous from every person in the room.

Cvc Bavo opening of volunteer centre by First Minister

Me in shirt

Today I was working in my home town of Bridgend. It was a PR shoot for BAVO (Bridgend Association of Voluntary Organisations).
BAVO are an umbrella organisation set up to develop and promote voluntary and community action throughout the county borough.

I have worked for BAVO on a number of occasions, this time Carwyn Jones was opening their new volunteer centre on Queen Street in Bridgend.
Rather than posting one of the images I have taken, I was snapped while I was working, so here is my best side 🙂

Bridgend Mashup

A bit of leisure shooting today at Bridgend Mashup. Captured loads of great images, it’s an amazing event with tons to see and do.

I love this image, perfectly timed to capture the fire at it’s biggest. A very impressive fire display by Truan Jay Mathias of Organized Kaos

Can’t wait to go again next year.
