Amnesty International is calling for families across the area to share their family photographs with their local paper to support the refugee Families Together campaign.

Your photos can capture anything which gives us a snapshot of your family life – from chasing the dog round the garden to playing board games with grandad.

Each photo needs to be accompanied by a sentence about why the photo is so special or treasured.

We will share photos in the paper, and the photo album will be presented to Home Secretary Sajid Javid in the week starting October 22. The aim is to show him that the UK understands the importance of family and cares about refugees living in this country, often hundreds or thousands of miles away from their family.

Working with Virgin Experiences, 12 prizes will be awarded across the regions for the photos using a lottery system. These will be family Segway rally days worth £140 each. There will also be one overall national prize of a family adventure holiday on the Gower Peninsula in Wales worth £950.

There will also be an enormous family photo album installation set up in Westminster. For more details of the campaign and to upload your photo, follow the link.
