Tesco workers dare to bare for charity calendar

The black-and-white 2013 calendar will be raising money for Cancer Research UK.

A GROUP of workers from Bideford Tesco have dared to bare all for charity by launching a WI-style calendar.

The ladies recruited the help of female photographers at Bideford Camera Club and stripped off for the tasteful calendar.

Brenda Slater, 61, said her and her colleagues were inspired by the film Calendar Girls.

She said: “It was so nerve wracking; the idea was good but when it came down to actually taking your clothes off in front of a camera it was very scary.

“I’ve done a sky dive for charity before and it was easier jumping out of a plane than stripping off and posing for photographs.

“But after the first couple of shots I think the nerves relaxed and we were getting into it a bit more.

The calendars will be on sale in various outlets around the town and will be sold for a �5 donation to Cancer Research UK.

“We’ve all had someone who’s had cancer and when you think about that and what they’re going through, doing this calendar was nothing really,” she added.

“It was good fun and we had a hell of a laugh doing it, and now we hope we can sell them all and raise lots of money for the charity.”
