Farm shop staff bared all and raised £1,900 to help young people with mental health issues
Staff at Millers Farm Shop in Kilmington bared all – and raised £1,900 for a worthy cause.
They compiled a nude 2018 calendar which was sold in aid of the Axminster-based charity - The Project.
The idea was born when James Miller, Kieran Marshall and Andy Drake were planting runner beans at the farm. 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.
The calendar went on sale for £7.99 and some 400 copies were snapped up.
Last week Millers’ staff presented the cheque to The Project manager Emma Curtis.
She told The Herald: “We are so grateful to Millers Farm Shop, this money will be used to provide support for young people to create healthy and nutritious meals in their cookery workshops.”
