A speech and language therapist from south east Northumberland will have her photographs used in a calendar for a national campaign.

Julie Carr, from Ashington, is actively involved in the campaign Giving Voice, which raises awareness of speech and language therapy.

The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) held a photography competition with the winning photos being made into a 2014 Giving Voice calendar – and two of Julie’s pictures were selected.

“There were hundreds of photos entered into the competition so I am really pleased that two of mine were chosen,” she said.

The judging panel included the Countess of Wessex and royal photographer Arthur Edwards.

“One of the photos is from when I held a communication chain across Gateshead Millennium Bridge and the other is of me with a Giving Voice a Speech Bubble at the Miner statue in Ellington,” she added.
