Charity Photoshoot to be Held

A local fundraising group, Team Aine, is to host a children’s photoshoot on Sunday 28 June.

Team Aine is a fundraising team raising funds for the Edinburgh Sick Kids Friends Foundation. All monies raised by the team this year are going to fund a playroom at the new Sick Kids Hospital, which is currently under construction.

On Sunday 28 June from 8am until 7pm they are holding a kids photo shoot. The photos will be taken by a professional photographer (who is donating his time to take and edit the photos). More info on the photographer is available here.

For a donation of between £10 and £20 pounds, attendees will receive a 10 minute session with the photographer and two free prints of their kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews.

To book a slot, you are urged to email Sam Currie (samcurrie75 @ with your preferred time slot. You will need to specify a half hour slot i.e. 8.00am-8.30am, your child’s name and a contact number. Following this, you shall receive a response confirming they are booked in. A donation should then be made to the following page, click here. This page also gives more info about Aine, who is their inspiration.

The event will be held at the Craigiebield House Hotel, Penicuik.
