I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Beatles and Dogs
Here is another chance to support the work of Victorian Dog Rescue(DRG) and see a great film at the same time. You will walk away with the feel-good factor totally covered!

The film Yesterday tells the story of Jack Malik, a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes an overnight sensation with a little help from his agent.

From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that can lead to the love of your life.

The Victorian Dog Rescue has been saving dogs and cats since 2006. Each animal that comes into their care is treated as if it were their own. Every effort is taken to ensure dogs and cats are looked after, physically, medically and emotionally, retrained if needed and hopefully, ultimately given to a family. Amongst the many activities and projects the organisation undertakes is the Drought Dogs Program. Victorian Dog Rescue was the first group to work in rural Victoria in bringing pound dogs and cats who were lost or displaced to Melbourne for rehoming.

For all the great activities they do on behalf of dogs and cats, fundraising is one way which enables them to continue the work they do, now and in the future.So please come and support them.
