Millers team pose for a nude calendar to raise money for Axminster based charity - The Project
Staff at Millers Farm Shop in Kilmington have been baring all – to help a worthy cause.
They have compiled a nude 2018 calendar to raise funds for the Axminster-based charity - The Project.
The idea was born when James Miller, Kieran Marshall and Andy Drake were planting this season’s runner beans at the farm.
The plan blossomed and the hunt began for a deserving charity.
Mr Marshall who took the photos said they chose The Project because it was committed to supporting and improving the emotional well-being and mental health of young people, aged 12- to 24, as well as providing support to the parents and carers of young people experiencing mental distress.
“It provides a friendly, non clinical space, for young people who can come and meet others with similar issues, talk, share, give and receive support, so reducing their isolation in the community.
“Not only do we want to raise as much money as we can for The Project, we also want to share this calendar with as many people as we can. We are all real people with varying body shapes and sizes and all had the courage to take part in this, which could also be a great way of tackling body shaming and to help people with body confidence issues.”
Speaking for the farm shop, Olivia Miller, one of the calendar girls, said: “We wish to thank everyone involved in the making of this calendar especially Kieran Marshall for being professional and making us all feel at ease while taking the photos – we did have lots of fun.”
The calendar is on sale at Millers Farm shop, off the A35, for £7.99 and is also available at Serendip Book Shop in Broad Street, Lyme Regis and at the New Inn in Kilmington, as well as on E Bay.
By last week the original print run of 200 copies had all been snapped up and more have had to be delivered.
The Project is based at the Young People’s Centre ion Lyme Road, Axminster and can be contacted on 01404 549045, 07970 167341 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
