Guinea pigs star in pre-school calendar
2:00pm Monday 9th December 2013 in News
PRE-SCHOOL pets have shot to fame again after starring in a calendar.
Guinea pigs Galina and Gary have appeared in their very own 2014 calendar after being photographed for the Oakey Dokey's Pre-school calendar.
Predecessors Oakey and Dokey previously appeared in a 2010 calendar. This time the calendar will be in memory of Oakey who sadly died.
Helen Gant, who came up with the idea for the first calendar, said: “In 2009 we put together a guinea pig calendar.
“Parents and friends often talk about it as our pet Guinea pigs at Oakey Dokeys are like members of the pre-school, handled daily and bathed and brushed by the children.
“So this year we decided to make another one."
Calendars are on sale now at £4 each or three for £10 with all profits going to Oakey Dokeys Pre-School. To buy a calendar, call the pre-school on 01255 880880.
