In July 2016, after contactings my local Fire Station wivin Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service I did begins my role as the Barkshire Firefighter. One fing did lead to anuver and wiv a little helps from some friends I did puts togever my first “The Barkshire Firefighter” Calendar 2017. I did sold just over 200 calendars and did raise £2610 to supplys the whole of Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service with Pet Oxygen Masks from Smokey Paws.
I wouldn’ts have been ables to do this wivouts the supports of my friends, Julie my photographer from Julie Robertson Pet Photography, Ben from Thames Valley Printers, my Vet Dr Simon Ratcliffe from Kelperland Veterinary Centre , Claire from Claire's Comfy Canines, Chris from Alpha Boiler Expert, Jen Harrison Veterinary Acupuncture, Level 1 Animal Management Students from Berkshire College of Agriculture and of course the help from Maidenhead Fire Station and the supports of the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service. The photographs did be taken at Maidenhead Fire Station and Greenham Common, Newbury. The fire themed bandanas did be all made by Izzy and Finn's Hound Boutique.

One did be a mannequin challenge to promote Retained Firefighter Recruitment and the other did be a music video “Stop, Drop and Roll” I often pops along to the charity Car Wash days to lend a paw and supports my friends in their fundraising efforts for The Firefighter’s Charity and other worthy causes.
