The naked calendar is set to be released later this year, and hopes to raise £30,000 from sales and sponsorship.

The group of men heard about the death of Charlie Goodwin, an ambulance driver from Bilsthorpe who passed away on April 20 after battling coronavirus, and decided they wanted to help his family.

One of the men, Neil Mckie said: “It was a no-brainer to get involved again after the success of 2014.

“This time we wanted to go for it, and smash our previous target.”

The 44-year-old electrician from Mansfield Woodhouse continued: “One of the lads knows Charlie’s family so we decided to donate some of the proceeds to them.

“Now we’re all just trying to get in shape for the photos!”

They are also pleased to announce that Linney of Mansfield offered to print the calendars free of charge, meaning more money can go to the good causes.

Miles Linney, managing director said: “As a company we are always pleased to be associated with anything to help our NHS, especially in the area.”

The current fundraising amount is an impressive £4,266, and anyone wishing to purchase a calendar can do so here.

The group are also looking to dedicate each page to our unsung heroes, and have asked for people to nominate NHS and care staff in the Mansfield community to be featured.
