A photography firm raised more than £450 for groups which support youngsters with its annual baby competition.

Gordon’s Photographic in North Street, Bourne, had more than 100 entries for the competition this year.

It was free to enter and people were charged 50p to cast a vote for their top three babies in the different age categories.

The winners received prizes including sittings for a year and canvas prints.

The firm will be donating items such as highchairs and toys to the toddler groups at Bourne Abbey Church and Bourne Baptist Church, as well as Bambino’s Baby Centre in Bourne and Cheeky Monkeys toddler group in Rippingale.

Rob Cochran, from Gordon’s Photographic, said those groups had been chosen because they were not-for-profit.

He said this year’s competition was a huge success and thanked everyone who had taken the time to enter or cast a vote.

The winners and their parents are pictured above receiving their prizes during a visit to the shop.
