A couple from Cornwall have explained how they were able to undertake a major charity project from their garden shed.

David Penprase and his wife Jan are now close to completing a book containing nearly 350 photographs of people from their town of Porthleven, the Falmouth Packet reported.

According to the newspaper, the pair have been using their garden shed as a workshop for putting together the charity book, which is now in the final stages of production.

It was also revealed that over the last 18 months, they have been photographing Porthleven residents of all ages, ranging from elderly people to a three-month-old baby, in order to provide material for the book.

"Not only will it hopefully raise a lot of money, but it's a brilliant archive. It's a huge cross section of the community at this time," said Mr Penprase.

The book will be sold at a number of businesses around Porthleven while an exhibition of the photographs is set to take place at the Customs House Gallery from February 12th-25th.

Proceeds from the sales are due to go the Children's Hospice South West's Precious Lives Appeal.
