Helping Hands is the theme of the competition, organised by the Cambridge Council for Voluntary Service (CCVS), the University of Cambridge and Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.

Staff, volunteers or supporters of groups from across Cambridgeshire are invited to submit pictures that illustrate the positive contribution they make to their communities.

Last year there were seven entries from Fenland; three of them – featuring Wisbech Street Pride, the Ferry Project and FACET - were shortlisted for a prize.

The closing date for entries is October 24. The winners will be announced at the CCVS conference on November 11.

All the photographs must have been taken with the permission of those shown. Where young people (aged 17 and under) are featured, permission must have been obtained from a parent or guardian.
