FORMER sports reporter Andy Starmore will be hosting a photography exhibition in aid of a cancer charity which helped his brother Barry.

The exhibition, sponsored by Langtry Manor Hotel, will consist of many famous Dorset attractions – including some stunning images of Corfe Castle and Gold Hill in Shaftesbury.

Taking place at the old Tourist Information Centre on Westover Road, the exhibition, which officially opens on Saturday, January 16, will be raising money for Macmillan Caring Locally.

“Macmillan is close to my heart,” said Andy, who studied photography at the Arts University College in Bournemouth.

“My brother Barry had a 12-hour operation in Poole Hospital for cancer eight months ago and thankfully he has now been given the all clear after an extremely tough year.

“Myself and especially my brother can’t thank Macmillan enough for their incredible support.”

Amongst the photographs on display will be some images of AFC Bournemouth supporters enjoying their first taste of Premier League action this season, as well as pictures of the 200 runners who ran took part in the Bournemouth Marathon who ran for Macmillan.

Andy was out and about taking photographs of the charity runners and some of his shots of that day will also be on display, as well as an incredible photo of Bournemouth Pier, which is worth making a visit in itself.

The exhibition runs until Saturday, February 6.
