Our first every charity calendar is now on sale and we think it looks amazing. It hasn’t all been plain sailing but it has been worthwhile. The charity calendar all started with our amateur photographer competition asking people to send their photos on the theme ‘Barry and Proud’.
We received 36 entries which we whittled down to 12 winners with the overall winning entry by Dan Jenkins of his dog ‘surveying his empire’ over Barry Island.
With the generous support from the following companies we have been able to cover the costs of printing the calendar to maximise the support we can give back to #OurCommunity.
Fun Harbour, Vale Funeral Services, Barry Island Pleasure Park, LDS Motor Factor, Edson Print, VOG Fire & Security, Barry Town Council, Nina Estate Agents, RIM Motors, Barry Town United, Exigo Training, Homemade Wales, Just Fancy, Whitemore & Jacksons, Auto-Pro, Barry Tyre Centre, Fat Pig Hog Roast & BBQ, Leanne Sokolski Consultantcy, Smart Desk Business Services and Communication Media. Plus date sponsorship by Briscombes, Earlyversity, Giggles Toys, Barrybados, Beautiful Lily Florist and Harmony Furnishings
We have ordered 2500 copies of the calendar to be printed, which will be ready for Christmas and 2017. We are hoping to raise around £11,000 to support local good causes and charities in and around Barry.
The calendar is just £5 plus p&p if posted outside Barry – the calendars are available to order via barrycharitycalendar.co.uk and on the Santa Sleigh whilst stocks last.
This is our first year at the calendar and we hope it will be a massive success and we plan to do it all again next year.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us, the calendar and most importantly #OurCommunity without it we couldn’t #DoMore
