A group of game girls from Absolute Triathlon Club in Nottingham launched their very first fundraising calendar ‘Absolutely Starkers’ in 2012.
The calendar sold through raising £2500 for the Foundation during 2013. The Foundation wishes to thank Cayci Lewis for organising this calendar and helping to raise the profile of the Karen Green Foundation.
Absolutely Starkers Calendar
Many thanks to our sponsors for funding the production of this calendar ensuring that 100% of the sale price from each calendar will go directly to the Karen Green Foundation.
When I first heard about The Karen Green Foundation, I began thinking about ways to help and raise money.
I thought of all the usual things such as cake sales and sponsored races, but nothing really caught my imagination. Whilst out on a ride one day the idea for a calendar came to me. I wasn’t aware of any other triathlon calendars out there, and ideas of possible props and pictures pinged into my head, the possibilities were endless! I immediately began gathering willing participants, telling them, ‘’Every charity has a naked calendar, and now it’s our turn….’’
I also mentioned that I would be posing too, so if I could do it….!
I wanted to convey the variety of people who participate in this brilliant sport, so approached women of different ages, shapes and sizes. They were all fantastic.
Pamela Dutton, Louise George, Vicki Watson, Vanessa Fletcher, Lisa Coneyworth, Ruth Willott, Julie Whaley, Catriona Wynne, my heartfelt thanks to you all for supporting such a great cause, and jumping straight in despite your nerves! This is the result. Enjoy!
