The Pub Crawl organized by Melissa Hayward and Adelheid Walsh for the Puppy Love Charity Calendar in aid of Ash Animal Rescue on Thursday the 30th December 2010 raised over 1000 euro by selling the calendar directly to folks around Dublin.
It was a very worthwhile effort, with a very positive reaction. People were amused and curios about the calendar and didn’t think twice to buy a copy to support Ash.
All proceeds made from the calendar go straight to Ash Animal Rescue. If you didn’t get your copy yet, visit
