DOZENS of women have taken part in a spot of saucy ceramic fun and bared their breasts to help raise more than �1,000 for a cancer charity.

The event was held at John Daye Ceramics in Needham Market High Street over the weekend and saw woman show a lot of front as they came up with some unusual artistic creations to celebrate their bodies in style.

The weekend was overseen by Lesley Moore, whose son Steven runs the ceramics shop as well as the post office and general store at the same premises.

She said: “We've been painting our breasts, popping them onto a plate and then making that shape into lots of different things - pandas, Christmas puddings, fried eggs and footballs.

“My sister is recovering from breast cancer and we wanted to do something close to home. We've collected over �1,000 so far, which is really good, and if people couldn't make it this weekend but can come later on then they can call in at anytime.”

Mrs Moore said the weekend sessions were a way for women to celebrate their bodies and enjoy being creative and said there was nothing naughty about the charitable event.

She added: “It's not rude, nothing like that. It's all a bit of fun and about raising awareness.

“And if they didn't want to paint their boobs we had a boob money box, in the shape of breasts with a bikini on. Half of the money for everything that has been painted today has gone into the pot for Cancer Research UK.”

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research and for more details visit www.cancerresearch.org.
