The British Red Cross shop, in Castle Street, Douglas, has launched a naked calendar.
The calendar, on sale for £6.99, was the idea of assistant manager Amie Charmer, pictured above with volunteer Jean Atherton – who persuaded 12 men, including her fiancé, brother-in-law, cousins and even the charity’s shop window cleaner to feature. ‘We wanted to do something that was different and would get us noticed,’ she said.
Many of the pictures, taken by Kelly-Anne Drinkwater, were taken inside the shop, with the men’s modesty protected by everything from loyalty cards, balloons and collection buckets. Picture: MP130809 (63)
