Date with the ladies

HATS off to these brave ladies for baring all in a ‘Calendar Girls’ style shoot to raise funds for their village feria.

Revealing exclusively their photo for April 2011, the women have also stripped in various poses, including
poolside, for the calendar which supports Villanueva de la Concepcion.

The group of five British women and a Dutch friend decided to get naked for a good cause over a ‘bottle of wine or two’.

“We wanted to do something to show that, as expats, we were integrating into the community,” said Sue Cooke, 57, pictured second right, holding fan.

“We thought it would be nice to physically support them by raising funds for the August feria. It felt like
such a ridiculous idea at our age, but we decided to go for it anyway.”

The group took many practice shots in their own homes before enlisting a professional photographer, Felix Garcia, who did all 12 shots, individually and in groups, in one day.

“We were so nervous about being undressed in front of each other but as the weeks and months progressed it
got easier.

“We then set aside two weeks for the nervous task of getting advertisers on board, but we’d filled it within three days!” said

Sue, whose hoping that sales to the public will go as well when the six euro calendar is launched at a special event in the village this week.
