Farmers strip for Tsunami appeal

LINCS FARMERS have stripped off for a naked calendar which they hope will raise money for victims of the Tsunami.


The calendars, created by a group in Friskney, near Boston, were produced in just 12 hours, reports the Lincolnshire Echo.


Farm manager Will Roughton and his friend Steve Nichols called villagers into action days after the tsunami struck, reports the paper.


Mr Roughton, who runs an arable farm in Friskney, said he was overwhelmed by how many people had supported their fund-raising.tsunami naked calendar


“I was originally hoping to sell 100 to 200 calendars and I was going to pay for the cost of making them,” he told the paper.


“Now we‘ve sold nearly 1,600 with more orders on the way – I can‘t believe it.”


The calendars will be on sale on Oxfam shops from Fri (Dec 14) and can also be order by visiting www.tsunami.photo-sense-photography.co.uk
