A young photographer with a life-limiting condition is selling her works to raise cash for the charity which has provided her with respite care.
Kate Mellor, who has muscular dystrophy, has been staying with Naomi House and jacksplace since she was five.
The photographer and artist from Wokingham has launched a website selling prints and canvases of her work, with a proportion of profits going towards the Hampshire-based charity.
Kate, 19, said: “My passion for photography and digital art started when I studied photography A-level at college.
“Digital art and photography allows me to be creative independently and being creative is my passion
“Naomi House and jacksplace mean the world to me and I wouldn’t know what I’d do without their support, which is why I give them a percentage of the profits made.”
To launch her business, Kate has donated a large canvas called A Forest of Illusions to the charity, and it now takes pride of place on the walls of jacksplace, the charity’s hospice for young adults.
