Calendar Launch at Salisbury Racecourse

Check out our webiste at What an amazing day! The weather was fantastic, we had a marquee, champagne, canapes from Roger at the Lord Nelson, a fantastic cake from Cupcakes of Salisbury, and 18 beautiful Calendar Girls. Many of our sponsors arrived to support us, as well as the Salisbury Journal, Chris Ewington from Spire FM, Mandy Milford from Hilltop Studios, taking photographs for Salisbury Life, and also a reporter from Sport4salisbury.

Some of us were interviewed by Chris for Spire FM and I even did a live interview for BBC Radio Wiltshire - very nerve wracking but great fun!

John Glen MP was terrific - not only was he interesting to talk to, but he was interested in everything we had to say. He is very keen on charitable causes and was impressed that we had so many business sponsors. He even gave us a couple of paragraphs in his blog last week! "The work that these women have done to raise funds for the Salisbury District Hospital Breast Cancer Unit for the community is outstanding - not to mention their willingness to bare (almost) all in a good cause. I have nothing but admiration for the energy and humour surrounding the project. It has been backed to the hilt by local businesses, and the result is a credit to the participants. I wish them every success in reaching their £11,000 target."

We certainly generated a lot of interest and were thrilled with the response we had from everyone. We sold nearly 200 calendars that afternoon, and came home with about £2,600, and some fabulous memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you to everyone who helped make it such a memorable and successful day.
