A photographer who lives at a care home in Farnham has created jigsaw puzzles using his pictures of Winchester Cathedral to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.

David Matthews, 73, has had Parkinson’s for 23 years and wanted to help the charity’s Find The Cure campaign as it has assisted him over that time.

A resident of Bupa’s Waverley Grange home, David chose Winchester as his subject because it was where he studied to become a teacher 54 years ago before working as a secondary school design and technology teacher.

The cathedral became something of a muse to him, and that, combined with his career, inspired him to make the jigsaw puzzles.

David said: “I’ve been a keen photographer since the age of 16, taking photos of the end of steam on British Rail. I wanted to use my hobby to give back a little something to the charity which has helped me over the years.”

He raised £295 from selling his puzzles and photographs. Waverley Grange supported his fundraising efforts by hosting an exhibition of his photographs and selling home-made cakes and crafts made by the other residents, generating an additional £117.95 for the cause.

Home manager Dilyana Sharkova said: “We’re incredibly proud of what David has achieved for a charity so close to his heart. It’s been a privilege to help him in his fundraising.”

Waverley Grange welcomes people needing nursing or residential care, including those living with Parkinson’s. For details visit https://www.bupa.co.uk/care-services
