Cal­en­dar girls of Wind­sor End

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Jack Abell jack.abell@trin­i­tymir­

A GROUP of women have shown their po­ten­tial as ma­ture mod­els by pos­ing for images on a char­ity cal­en­dar.

Res­i­dents of Brad­bury House in Wind­sor End, Bea­cons­field, have taken part in the ini­tia­tive to raise money for the char­i­ta­ble trust that runs the house.

It is the first time any form of char­ity cal­en­dar has been pro­duced, and the women in­volved donned a va­ri­ety of out­fits for the photo shoot.

The chair­man of trus­tees, Jeff Med­lock, said: “The idea came from the peo­ple liv­ing at the home. They thought it would be a good thing to do to raise money and that it would be a lot of fun, and so it was de­cided to go ahead with it.

“They put on all their ‘bling’ and their best dresses, and it was great. They had a fan­tas­tic time.

“It was an op­por­tu­nity for some of them to put on clothes that they haven’t worn for a long time, so that was great, and they all re­ally en­joyed it.”

The money will be used to help res­i­dents who are strug­gling to pay for things and it is hoped that friends and rel­a­tives as well as the wider pub­lic will buy copies of the cal­en­dar to help raise as much money as pos­si­ble.

There are 41 el­derly peo­ple liv­ing at Brad­bury House and fundrais­ing events are held through­out the year.

Mr Med­lock said: “This is not some­thing we’ve done be­fore but it was such a lot of fun for ev­ery­one in­volved, so we may look into do­ing it again in the fu­ture.

“Hope­fully it will raise a lot of money be­cause that’s the idea be­hind it all.

“It’s some­thing I’m sure the ladies in­volved will al­ways re­mem­ber do­ing.”
