Grandmoms’ Nude Calendar
This is not the 1st time. They did it 10 years back, they are doing it AGAIN. Anyone wanna order a copy?
The original “Calendar Girls” have taken their clothes off for charity again 10 years after they first inspired a Hollywood movie and started a national craze for nude calendars.
Wearing little more than a smile and a trademark set of pearls, six members of the Yorkshire-based Women’s Institute have been reunited for a new 2010 calendar.
The youngest of them, Chris Clancy, is now 57; the oldest, Beryl Bamforth, is 75. They are pictured in typical WI scenes, their modesty protected only by a baby-grand piano, a tea pot and sprouting broccolli on a vegetable patch.
The women launched the full colour calendar for Leukaemia Research at Harvey Nicholls in Leeds yesterday.
Angela Baker, 63, whose husband’s death from lymphoma led to the idea for the first calendar, was surprised that people were celebrating their reunion.
“Thank you for coming,” she said. “We were a little worried whether anyone would turn up 10 years on but it has been brilliant to see you are.”
With a combined age of 379, the women are perhaps old enough to know better by now. But Mrs Baker suggested not and said she could not rule out another calendar in the future.
