Fundraising for Canine Concern – Calendar 2019
For the last few years I have been producing a calendar for friends and family. This year I have decided to go all out and try a bit of fundraising while I’m at it…
The first couple of years I made calendars using photos taken by two amazing dog photographers – Kate Everall Photography and Bridget Davey Photography. These two are highly skilled at their job and if you want gorgeous photos of your dogs, look no further. Kate also takes fabulous photos of people, including newborn babies, children and families with their dogs – I highly recommend her.
Last year, I made a calendar using my own photographs for the first time. Obviously I am not a professional photographer, but thanks to some lessons from Kate and a decent camera, I have been pleased with the results.
The advantage of using my own photos, vs ones taken by the professionals, is that I am able to take pictures throughout the year. My goals with my pictures for next year’s calendar have been as follows:
- seasonal pictures – preferably with flowers (collie flowers – get it?)
- different dogs – there are 8 different dogs on next year’s calendar
- different poses – lying down is the easy one, but I have tried to get some variety as well
- showing off what makes Border Collies SO special.
Available to buy
I have decided to offer a number of these calendars for sale, within the UK only. In addition, I have decided to do this as a fundraising exercise for a charity very close to my heart: Canine Concern.
I am therefore offering these calendars for sale for £10+p&p. For each calendar sold, £2 will be donated to Canine Concern. I hope you agree that this is a worthwhile cause. I am very proud of the fact that three of the dogs I have bred have now joined this charity and are working in schools. It is my hope that others may be inspired to join the work done, which makes such a difference to a huge number of children and adults.
I do have a target figure in mind, but I will have to see how things go. I have ordered a number of calendars to get going, so let’s see what happens.
Please can you CONTACT ME with details of your order? As this is only a small, personal fundraising project, I have not been able to set up an official shop (that is not what I’m about), so please bear with me? I’ve added a contact form for you to fill in if that’s easier?
CALENDARS COST £10+p&p (UK only).
