Lives & Times Fundraising Book Press Release


Contact Tim Darvell



Lives & Times Portrait Photography Book

Reading, November 7, 2015– Tim Darvell from Reading has written a book to help raise money for the charity Beating Bowel Cancer after his mother was diagnosed with the disease.

Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in the UK, but if detected early over 90% of cases can be successfully treated. Tim’s mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2012 and had her fourth operation at the beginning of 2015, and made a complete recovery. However as the book neared its completion in October 2015 the cancer has come back once again, and his mother has to face another course of treatment.

Over the course of 18 months he met and photographed people from all walks of life to form the chapters of Lives & Times. Every single person taking part in this book has given up their own time to do it and all funds raised from the sales of the book are being donated to the charity. The stunning photography takes a closer look at the energy and dynamism of human beings and the joy in life when energy and health are as one.

Some of the celebrities taking part include, Sir Steve Redgrave, Katherine Grainger, Lorraine Kelly, Gabby Logan, Christopher Biggins, and Matthew Wright.

Tim said, “Every chapter tells a different story, and it was fascinating to see how they unfolded. Whether I was meeting a celebrity or an ordinary person, I found that everyone has a tale to tell and all are stars of the book.”

Tim is available for media interviews and can be reached via email at
