Did You Know


“Great Pics!” a Facebook friend commented “you should make a calendar!” …. and so, it began.

I wanted to create a calendar that would give everyone a smile, and what better way to do that than with animals… luckily, I have a few.

Next on my agenda was to use the calendar to raise funds for my 2 favourite charities: Contact the Elderly and Strathcarron Hospice… both charities very personal to my own heart.

Strathcarron Hospice very kindly put me in touch with their local publisher, Eddie Shotliff, who enabled me to create the calendar and sell at a low price (£5), but with maximum profits for both charities.

Once the calendar was created I had great support with selling it from the local community: McNicoll’s Country Store, Rhubarb Lime, Judyjamjar, Feeds & Stoves (Callander) and the Inn at Kippen. I also sold it via Facebook, Friends and Family.

Fusion Flowers magazine assisted with reduced postage costs for overseas customers. So now my calendar is all over the UK, USA, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Europe!

Thank you to everyone who bought a calendar as I have reached my target and raised £400 for each charity!
