In just three weeks, the Bare to Care Charity Calendar has raised £3,600 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

The calendar was on sale in the George Centre at last weekend’s Christmas Market, where organiser Ruth Clements was joined by Emma Aust, Karen Auckland and Becky Gwyther to raise £645 in just four hours.

Nottingham Forest Football Club have also supported the calendar with Henri Lansbury tweeting about it and the whole team signing three calendars which sold for £40 each.

Ruth said: “I’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of people in Grantham at this expensive time of year – Grantham people have big hearts.”

She added: “The response to this calendar has been phenomenal and I cannot thank the ladies involved, sponsors and each and every one of you who have purchased a copy enough.”

However there are still a few copies left, and Ruth has a fundraising target of £5,000.

The calendars are £10 each with 100% of the money going to the two charities. Stockists are Jenny Wren Lingerie, Unveiled by Leanne, St Peter’s Hill Post Office, Genes Barbershop, Woodland Waters in Ancaster, Indulgence Delivered and The Atrium Grantham.
