Calendar girls of Windsor End
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.”
