Marina Mutts - our fundraising calendar
Raising funds for Takis Shelter in Crete and Dogs Trust in UK
Your dog could be 'marina mutt of the month'
Send us your photo by 26 October
We've decided to make a 'Marina Mutts' desk calendar to raise funds for canine charities. We're going to feature our customers' and staff dogs as the 'marina mutt of the month', so we're looking for 12 canine supermodels.
Send us your photos of your canine crew on deck, mooching around the marina, in a saucy sailor hat - any nautical pose.
All hounds are welcome - large and small, scruffy or sleek, puppies or oldsters.
Please send photos by email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your pooch's name.
Please send high-resolution images suitable for printing. This means JPG files that are over 1MB. For tekkies, we need 300dpi.
Buy a calendar and support stray dogs
We support lots of charities (Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, Sullivans Heroes, Sailability, Sea Cadets, Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust and lots more), but we're quite a doggy company and we thought we'd support our four-legged friends this time.
Samantha from Haslar Marina has been a long-time supporter of Takis Shelter in Crete - Takis gave up everything to set-up a rescue shelter and now cares for 300 dogs, cats and goats single-handedly. Food and vet bills are huge, but people from around the world, including Samantha, volunteer to help Takis and keep the shelter going by raising money. Follow the action on his Facebook page
We don't want to forget local dogs, so if we can encourage you to buy enough calendars, we'll split the proceeds between Takis and the Dogs Trust.
Calendars will be on sale for £5 each at all of our marinas from late-November onwards.
