MEMBERS of the business community have been letting their hair down to take part in a charity calendar that is raising funds for the Macmillan Nurses.
The idea of a calendar came from Trudy Smith, Julie Manders and professional photographer Steve Harrowven, who runs S & S Photographers studio in Halesworth.
Mr Harrowven said: “We all have our personal reasons for wanting to support these nurses.
You may also want to watch:
“Cancer has struck in many families in the area and in my particular case I became involved in the project in memory of my late wife Hazel, who died of cancer.”
The three entrepreneurs did not know what sort of response they would receive from the business community in Halesworth for the fundraising idea.
- 1 Family of hairdresser, 17, who died in her sleep 'overwhelmed' by tributes
- 3 Suffolk families stunned after homes transformed on Changing Rooms
- 4 Channel 4's Changing Rooms comes to Bury St Edmunds tonight
- 5 Teen among two arrested in armed police incident
- 6 Villagers call to stop 'hazardous' 5-week road closure with huge diversions
- 7 Suffolk coast named one of top UK destinations for autumn
- 8 Jail for man who threatened to 'do a Raoul Moat' and kill police
- 9 Couple fear they will never sell home after A12 upgrade outside
- 10 Donacien on his Ipswich Town future and why he wears the No.44 shirt
But Julie said: “Everyone was extremely supportive. There were so many people wanting to take part that it was a hard task limiting it to just 12.”
Trudy added: “There was such a good response from everyone that we hope to make this particular calendar an annual event.”
The calendar does not have an overall theme, although those taking part were determined to make it as light-hearted as possible.
Mr Harrowven said: “A lot of people have had a lot of fun posing for the photographs that will be used in the calendar.
“The pictures are all very different, but one thing they have in common is portraying a great sense of humour.
“We hope that it will bring a smile to the faces of those who buy the calendar and also help raise money for the Macmillan Nurses who do such a fantastic job.”
The calendars will be launched at a special ceremony in Halesworth during November. For more information, contact Julie Manders on 01986 875007.
