Brit army wives bare all for 2009 calendar to raise PS64k for charityNovember 4th, 2008 - 5:37 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 4 (ANI): A group of Army wives have found a sexy way to help their hero soldierspose naked.
A number of women between 23-29 years have posed nude with a bit of their husbands military gear for a 2009 calendar titled Garrison Girls.
The move was organised by Sarah Bennett Thurston, a mum-of-three, who claims that she was by the 2003 film Calendar Girls, in which members of the Womens Institute made a nude calendar.
Our aim is to raise 64,000pounds. We couldnt do that with cake sales or raffles, The Sun quoted her as saying.
She added: I loved the idea, talked to friends about it and soon had volunteers ranging from a high-ranking officers wife to a new recruits wife.
Were all mums and housewives. Our husbands are 100 per cent behind us. It was liberating to strip.
Sarah, 31, is the Miss January 2010 in the 13-month calendar, and has many of her friends posing naked for various months in the saucy calendar.
The raises from the sales of the calendars will be given to the Sun-backed Help For Heroes campaign and Combat Stress, which helps frontline soldiers suffering psychological disabilities.
Sarah added: We wanted the calendar to be artistic so we are just showing a bottom or the outline of a breast. We wanted it to be subtle and sexy.
The pictures were clicked by photographer Mick Payton and he did it all for free.
He said: This is one way I can give something back to those who risk their lives fighting for their country. (ANI)
