Hinckley Times - - FRONT PAGE - NI­CHOLAS DAW­SON ni­cholas.daw­son@reach­

A TV star from Hinck­ley is launch­ing her third char­ity cal­en­dar with an evening of en­ter­tain­ment.

Take Me Out and Coach Trip con­tes­tant Jodie Car­nall is hold­ing a fundraiser to plug the 2019 edi­tion of her lin­gerie cal­en­dar in aid of The Brain Tu­mour Char­ity.

The night of fun will in­clude per­for­mances from Joanne Steel’s Kylie Minogue trib­ute and Matthew Hick­man.

Hinck­ley band Reg­gaRock­aBoo­gie will be per­form­ing a range of mu­sic from reg­gae to rock from the 60s to the 90s.

Among the TV guests at the event will be Big Brother and Love Is­land con­tes­tants, as well as Jodie’s part­ner Jimmy from their run on E4’s Coach Trip.

Jodie said: “I held my first fundraiser last year and the at­mos­phere in the room was just beau­ti­ful.

“Peo­ple from all over the UK at­tend­ing, lots of peo­ple on their own, who were scared at first, but ev­ery­body was friends by the end of the night.

“It’s great for peo­ple who want to make friends and have a good night with­out be­ing judged.

“It’s an event that caters for all ages and I love how my guests range from chil­dren to adults in their 60s.

“It re­ally is a spe­cial night where ev­ery­body comes to­gether for char­ity and to sup­port my cal­en­dars.”

Free prosecco and food will be on of­fer along with a sweets cart, raf­fle and silent auc­tion, a glit­ter face paint sta­tion and some prize give­aways.

Guests are in­vited to dress in what­ever they feel com­fort­able in. Jodie or­gan­ised the cal­en­dar after her aunt was di­ag­nosed with a brain tu­mour in 2016.

The launch event is at the Chase Ho­tel in Nuneaton on Oc­to­ber 20, start­ing at 7pm. Tick­ets are £10. Male and fe­male model ver- sions of the cal­en­dar are avail­able for pre-or­der for £8.

The pho­tos for the cal­en­dar were taken by Lau­ren Lewis at Stu­dio-17.
