Our Troon Community Space has teamed up with an Ayrshire College photography student to offer a free mini photoshoot to South Ayrshire dog lovers over 60 and their pooch.  Local residents are being offered a 30-minute timeslot to attend our charity’s Community Space at 9 Ayr Street, Troon over the next three Mondays, starting 29 November and participants will receive a lovely photo of them and their pet for free.

Interested?  There are limited places available so places are being offered on a first come first served basis.  Register your interest today and a member of our team will be in touch soon.

Our loneliness and animal charity helps people over 60 afford a rescue pet companion, while our Community Spaces welcome over 60s in for a free cup of tea and a blether with staff and volunteers, and to enjoy the company of our wonderful Companionship Dogs.

We were so delighted with Jacqui’s offer to donate her time and skills to our charity. We work hard to highlight the benefits that animal companionship can make to an older person’s life, and
photographs are a lovely way to capture that. We’re very grateful to Jacqui for her support.

When Jacqui Conn, Ayrshire College photography student, approached us and said she wanted to donate her time and skills learned on her photography course, we came up with the idea together to offer a free photo to people over 60 and their dog companion from the local area.

I have had rescue dogs myself and know the happiness they bring, so to see the Troon hub blossom tackling loneliness among older adults and support rehoming in a unique way just made me want to play a small part if I could.

Timeslots over the three Mondays are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis.  Give a Dog a Bone is offering 30-minute timeslots with Jacqui on Monday 29 November, Monday 6 December and Monday 13 December at the Troon Community Space, 9 Ayr Street, Troon, KA10 6EB. Timeslots will be confirmed upon payment of a £10 deposit which will be returned on the day of the photoshoot.
