Amateur photographer set to make new charity calendar

An epilepsy patient is all set to use his photography skills to give a wildlife calendar for a charity in spite of having as many as twenty four fits every week. Forty nine year old Peter Hunter from Breightmet is not able to drive or work because of his present condition.

But after taking pictures of pheasants, kestrels, deer as well as several other wildlife in the Bolton region. Now he is expecting a make a difference with a brand new calendar to collect funds for PDSA, United Kingdoms Epileptic Society and Cancer Research.
Peter was born epileptic. He stated that his condition got bad when he was battered at work around thirteen years ago. Shortly after the incident, he left the Department for Social Services. He added that prospective employers have deemed him too much of a gamble to hire.

Now, Peter lives alone in a warden-controlled flat. He just has three dogs. He told that in a good week, he could get away with maybe 4 fits, but in a bad one he could have as many as twenty or twenty four. He also has broken ribs. He was told that there is nothing that could be done, as there is a problem with a nerve in his temple and they could not do anything with it. He would have fits for the rest of his life.

Seventy of his photographs have featured on television, while 85 snaps were published in Bolton News, in an exhibition in conjunction with Wedding Photography Cheshire.
