TWO charities are in line for a sizeable donation as sales of a calendar featuring photos of some well-known local dogs continue at pace.

Nearly 800 copies of Kaylee Garrick’s 2022 calendar have been pre-ordered so far, with proceeds due to go to The Ambulance Staff Charity (TASC) and veterans charity Bravehound.

As with her previous calendars, it features numerous eye-catching photos of her many well trained dogs – often in costume.

With the calendar priced at £10 there should be a significant donations coming to the two charities.

TASC provides a range of services to support the mental health, physical rehabilitation and financial wellbeing of the UK’s ambulance staff, their family members, students and service volunteers.

Meanwhile Bravehound provides support dogs to veterans who have a clinical diagnosis of a mental health condition such as post traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety.

Garrick, who works as a paramedic, said: “We’ve nearly hit 800 sales, so the 1,000 mark is just so, so close.

“We would absolutely love to reach that target which would mean handing over a huge donation to each of our charities by the end of it.

“The calendars will be on sale online until midnight on Thursday and then there will be a very limited number available in the i’i Shetland shop in the Toll Clock.”

Garrick said she had “loads of fun” creating the 2022 calendar, which has taken her across Shetland.

“This year, expect Vikings, fire fighters, Ghostbusters and teddies!

“We’ve loved making people laugh and smile, and can’t wait to see everyone’s response when they receive their calendar.”

People can pre-order the 2022 calendar here.
