You know the story of a group of ordinary women who agreed to pose for a charity calendar with a difference - in the nude!

John Baker, a fit and healthy 53 year old, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. John's friends in the village rallied round Angela, John and family, keen to do something to help. Sadly, John died five months after receiving the diagnosis. Soon after the funeral Angela received a visitor, Tricia armed with clipboard. "Come on", she said, "Are we going to do this calendar? Even if we don't sell any, at least we'll have tried to do something." To their surprise, this brought fame to them and Yorkshire village.
