'Naked for the NHS' calendar goes on sale

A group of Mansfield men have stripped off for a charity calendar in aid of the NHS, and it is on sale now.

Back in 2014 the group of men got together for a naked calendar and raised more than £5,500 for Fountaindale School in Mansfield, and this year they have set their sights higher.

They hope to raise almost £30,000 for both the NHS and to support the family of Charlie Goodwin, a paramedic who lost his life to coronavirus earlier this year.

Linney in Mansfield very generously offered to print the calendar free of charge, meaning every penny from sales can go to good causes.

Shaun Eden-Taylor who helped organise the calendar said: “We are currently just shy of £18,000 which is brilliant, and we have had plenty of local businesses come forward offering to sell them for us, which is amazing.

"We really want to hit the target if we can, and we have 1,500 calendars out for sale at the minute.”

Local businesses have also come forward to donate prizes which are being auctioned off via their facebook page, with prizes such as a full house selling package from Just Move estate agents.

The 16-month calendars run from September 2020 to December 2021 and cost a minimum donation of £5.99 each, and are on sale at the following venues:
