Residents in the Essex village of Cornish Hall End have collaborated on a 2013 calendar with a difference in aid of a good cause.
Kelly Bishop and Karen Rozée invited the village’s ladies and employees of its pub, The Horse & Groom, to appear in a cheeky calendar in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
“The response was amazing,” says Kelly. “Each lady was then issued with the ‘Country Crackers’ uniform consisting of black French knickers and a robe for dignity. From then came a rise in gym memberships, body scrubs, spray tans and lots of hesitant ladies asking themselves ‘What have I got myself into?’
“We enlisted the professional photographic services of James Linsell-Clark and Lisa de Araujo who patiently donated their time and spent two days with us in various locations in the village shooting pictures.
“On a more serious note, Breakthrough Breast cancer is dedicated to saving lives by finding the causes of breast cancer, improving detection, diagnosis, treatment and services.”
It costs £10 (all of which goes direct to the charity), with £3 P&P. The aim is to raise £10k. Get your copy by emailing Kelly.
