The lovely ladies from Carrington Retirement Village in Camden NSW have recently shed their clothes for a good cause, featuring in their very own Carrington Girls 2011 Calendar in support of cancer research.
With some strategically positioned props, these incredibly brave eleven women grace the cover of the calendar to raise funds for their chosen charity – the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF).
Calendar organiser, Shirley Curtis, has been supporting ACRF since losing her husband to cancer two years ago, and says the ladies have all been all been touched by cancer personally or through loved ones.
After convincing some of the residents to take part in the fun idea, Shirley and the ladies began to build the calendar by enlisting some help from generous supporters, including booking the photographers – Suzie and Jodi from Gorgeous Photography and Design – for the daring shoot.
“There’s a bare shoulder and leg here and there, but it’s pretty modest because we are all seniors,” Mrs Curtis, 74, said.
The calendar is now available from the Carrington Retirement Village website, with all proceeds from sales going to Carrington Village and the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
The team at ACRF wishes to thank Shirley and the Carrington Girls for supporting us with the calendar – we suspect you have inspired a few ladies to line up for the 2012 edition!
