Ootmahoosewindae Charity Calendar 2018
The Ootmahoosewindae Charity Calendar is a wildlife calendar for 2018 with a difference ! All the photographs have been taken in my garden near Oban.
Locally known as MacKay's Pond, I have been sitting out for days and nights watching what goes on out of my window. It is absolutely amazing what you can see with patience and luck ! It has to be said I am not a professional wildlife photographer, however I do take a real interest in observing and recording what goes on within 100 yards of my house.
A friend approached me after seeing some images. She wanted to help raise funds for our local Macmillan Day Care Unit in the Lorn and Islands Hospital. The unit covers a vast area of Argyll and the isles and has helped and comforted many, many people including some close friends. She really wanted to give something back for all the care and attention she has received over the years- so we thought we would do our bit by making a calendar. This would be sold to raise funds for the unit.
We would like to raise in excess of £5,000 for this worthy and incredibly hardworking cause. The printing costs have already been met through very generous local company support. Their commitment has been amazing - thanks guys.
As a result ALL SALES and DONATIONS received for calendars, will be directly for the benefit and comfort of patients at the Macmillan Day Care Unit.
P.S. No animals were hurt during their photographic capture and in the making of this calendar !!!!
