Daring to bare all for calendar

Evesham Editorial 17th Oct, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

PRICES are not the only thing being dropped in Port Street as female business owners have dared to bare all for a fund-raising calendar.

Female businesses owners on one of Evesham’s best known streets have peeled off for the 2015 calendar to raise cash for the Port Street Regeneration Fund.

As well as celebrating everything Port Street has to offer, the 12 business brains hope the tasteful calendar will help raise enough cash to breathe new life into the street.

The intrepid dozen took their inspiration from the iconic British movie Calendar Girls and hope the latest business decision will prove to be a big hit in the run up to Christmas.

Kim Dunn, from Bonk, was the brains behind the calendar and the first to get her clothes off to become ‘Miss April’.

“Port Street has become a hot spot for self employed lady entrepreneurs.” she said.

“The ‘Port Street Babes’ have put their business minds together and their latest plan is set to be a real talking point and

a ‘must have’ for this Christmas.

“It’s been a right laugh and really brought the girls closer together.

“It was scary doing the photo shoots, but worth it as the pics are amazing. You must buy this calendar!”

The 2015 calendar, which will cost £10, is raising money for the Port Street regeneration fund.

To make sure they don’t order too many it is all on a pre-order only basis, for a very limited time as it goes on sale from next week until the end of November.

The calendars, which were shot by Jj LoBue, Prospect Photography, and will be printed by Mike, Create Design & Print, will then be ready for collection mid December.

They will be on sale in the businesses belonging to the ladies taking part, who from left to right, are
