Children with learning difficulties and disabilities got snapping this half term with a new camera bought with a donation from the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust.
The Flying High Playscheme, provided by the Royal Borough's learning difficulties and disabilities service, organises activities and events for children aged five to 17 during school holidays.
The half term playscheme, which ran from Monday last week to Friday, was the first chance the children had to try out their new digital camera.
Playscheme co-ordinator Suki Hayes said: "When I found out we had been granted the donation for the camera I was so excited for the children. They love having their pictures taken and enjoy taking pictures of all the activities they do.
"With all the new fantastic pictures taken the children shall be able to create their own memory boxes from their time spent at Flying High."
The children spent the week with animal visitors from the Reptile Roadshow and Feathers and Fur, and made cards and cakes on Valentine's Day.
They also enjoyed a trip to Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) and went swimming, while teens went ice skating and hit the shops in Windsor.
