Glasgow Dogs Trust’s Waggy Walk 2011

The rain was miserable but that didn’t stop hundreds of dogs and their humans enjoying themselves at Tollcross Park this morning. They were taking part in the annual Waggy Walk to raise money for Dogs Trust, and they LOVED it. Photos will be here soon but you’ll find a bunch over on my Facebook page in the meantime!

Twisted Firewalker

I’m going to walk on fire. It’s just a small step away from walking on water although that may be a literal step if it goes wrong on the day. It’s all happening on the 27th March, on the hallowed turf of Hampden Park, a short crawl from home and A&E. I have every eventuality covered.

The firewalk is to raise money for OneKind (formerly Advocates for Animals), a brilliant animal charity. Visit www.onekind.org to find out more about them and have a look at their clever film trailer hoax. It stars Angus MacInnes, who you may recognise from Star Wars. I recognised him as Sonny from River City but that says more about me than him.

OneKind’s video excited thousands of sci-fi fans across the world and went on to win a Movieviral award. Please do watch it.

I photographed OneKind’s first firewalk last year and was hugely impressed by the staff, the organisation, and the preparation for the firewalkers. I didn’t take much persuasion when the team asked me take part this year.

I’ll tell you all about it once I’ve recovered. In the meantime, feel free to donate a little bit of money to help the charity’s great work :)

Thank you!

Lee McConnell Photocall

I took a few pictures at a photocall for Maggie’s Centres today. Athlete Lee McConnell teamed up with staff and supporters to launch a recruitment drive for women to run the 10k, to raise money for Maggie’s. It was a typically grey, miserable day in Glasgow and the ladies were freezing but they were great sports. Great sports, geddit?! Ach, I make myself laugh ;)

More photos are on Flickr and Facebook.
