INSPIRING photographs of vulnerable children and adults are going on show inside Worcester Cathedral.

Professional photographers Rachel and Phil Hibberd, from Malvern, spent a week at the Megan Baker House in Herefordshire taking candid shots of the families who make use of the service.

More than 200 children, most of them with cerebral palsy, and almost 100 adults living with Parkinson’s Disease, strokes or brain injury attend the centre near Leominster.

The pictures capture them at rest, at play and at work as they try to come to terms with disability and lead independent lives.

The Megan Baker House Photographic Exhibition, which opened in the Dean’s Chapel at Worcester Cathedral yesterday features a selection of those moving photographs.

Canon David Stanton, said: “I am delighted that this exhibition will be taking place within the cathedral.

“Megan Baker House is doing fantastic work with some of society’s most vulnerable children, and it is our great privilege to both heighten awareness of their work and help others find out more about this excellent charity.”

The charity offers free conductive education, which is a unique way of teaching specifically developed for people with neurological motor disorders. The aim is to help both children and adults with brain conditions to regain some of the reflex reactions that most of us take for granted.

Mrs Hibberd, who runs the company All Yours Photography from her home in Worcester Road, Malvern, said: “Being at the centre was an amazing experience.

“When I take photographs I am there, but I am not. I try to be invisible so nobody is posing. Everyone carries on with whatever it is they are doing.”

It is hoped that the Megan Baker House Photographic Exhibition will move to venues outside Hereford-shire and Worcestershire. For further details see The exhibition is at Worcester Cathedral until Sunday, March 21.
