A bikini car wash in Heywood by five UK Calendar Girl hopefuls has raised £270 for charity.
Claire Harrington, of Heywood, Sarah Doran, of Liverpool, Charlotte Hewison, Carrie-Anne Collins, of Cannock, and Niki Lomax, of Ramsbottom, donned their bikinis and set about washing the public’s cars for four hours at the Summit Pub on Saturday 6 July.
The funds raised by the girls will be split between The Chestnut Appeal for prostate cancer and Mental Health Awareness.
Claire said: “The day was a blast and it was so busy; it was like a conveyor belt. We had vans, cars, bikes and even a removal lorry, which we tackled with step ladders and lots of jumping.
“Thank you to everyone that came down and supported us, with a big thank you to Bamfort Print and Peel Graphics and John and the Summit Pub for letting us host our car wash there.”
UK Calendar Girls is a modelling competition which raises money and awareness for cancer-related charities at key events throughout the year.
The Calendar Girls concept was launched in January 2006 by Myles Lockwood, a publisher and print broker in Plymouth, originally named Plymouth High Street Girls.
Today the competition has expanded from Plymouth, Bournemouth and Bristol to all of the UK under the name of UK Calendar Girls with casting days in Bristol, Plymouth, Cardiff, Watford, Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds.
