Twelve brave women have dared to bare all for a special calendar – and are hoping its sales will raise hundreds of pounds for a cancer charity.

The Covenham calendar girls were brought together by Holly Hillary, 35, who devised the idea from her very own bucket list following the sudden death of both her father and grandmother.

“When I lost my dad and nan, I decided that I wanted to begin a bucket list,” explained Holly.

“Three of my initial challenges included embracing my body for how it is, raising funds for charity and doing something to inspire others.

“I felt like this calendar would take care of all three in one go.

“I had no set charity in mind, but we decided to raise money for Cancer Research UK as it linked in well with helping women to feel good about themselves.”

Holly has already raised thousands of pounds for a number of worthy causes.

She added: “The girls are a variety of ages, from 20 to 50, and we are really grateful for all the support that we have received so far.”

The calendar is available to buy from North Thoresby Post Office, or from Tesco in Cleethorpes on November 18 and 19 from 10am to 6pm.
