Thank you for taking interest in our fundraising story.
Myself and my friend Tania from Worcester are taking part in a dream challenge next year, cycling coast to coast in Costa Rica. This will be a huge physical challenge for us.
Tania and I both lost relatives to cancer last year and wanted to do something positive to raise funds and awareness for our charity Women vs Cancer which supports Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action. We wanted to fundraise so that as many people as possible could be involved in our project.
Now our fundraising story gets a little crazy. We came up with the idea of a “Calendar Girls” style calendar and began organising it. The Worcester Saucy Calendar.
This has now become something we never expected.
On July 1st we had 106 local women attended a photo shoot at Whitbourne Hall and Longlands Farm in Worcestershire for our Country Life theme calendar, professional photographer, makeup and hair stylists, caterers, a bar and lots and lots of volunteers for the day and people were even coming to us requesting to be in the calendar. Some of these ladies have or are suffering with cancer at this time. This was an emotional day for all involved and the hard work from all our volunteers could not be thanked enough. We have had a lot of media attention for this project BBC Hereford and Worcester, BBC Radio 4 and Loose Women. As word is spreading we are receiving more and more attention. We have also had a lot of interest from businesses to sell our calendars.
Now we have our images we are seeking sponsorship for help with our printing costs. Ourselves and our charities would be extremely grateful if your business could help in any way.
The Worcester Saucy Calendar will be on sale 7th September.
We hope to hear from you soon and your business being part of our journey.
Tania and Jody
