Meet Gareth Williams, Studio Team Leader – Spear Cwmbran, Wales

Gareth has worked for Constantia for 9 years, he works in the studio as Studio Team Leader.

It’s not your normal holiday destination but Gareth wanted to visit Chernobyl, after his visit, he wanted to raise awareness and give something back to the families who were left with nothing after the biggest nuclear catastrophe of the 20th Century, so he took these breath taking photos that show you the devastation and heartache that was left behind. He funded and put together the whole calendar himself.

 

 

Back Ground information

What happened there on April 26th 1986 is a disaster that is still affecting parts of the Ukraine and most of Belarus, the worst affected are children born since, heart defects and deformities are just a few of the things that are still occurring regularly and charities and hospitals are struggling to cope.

A percentage from every calendar sold will be going to Chernobyl children’s charity www.chernobyl-international.com to help fund medical care, and alleviate the suffering that these children go though.

Gareth has raised over £100 so far with the sales of his calendars.
