Photographers Julie Ayres, of Uggmere Court Road, Ramsey Heights, and Stevie Thory, of Coates, asked friends and acquaintances to drop their inhibitions, and their clothes, for a charity calendar.

The group of 14, aged from 19 to 50, including Michelle Axon of Warboys, Emma and Diana Mitchell from Ramsey St Mary’s, Frances Presland of Ramsey Mereside and Suzanna Robinson and Julie Stewart of Ramsey, met at Ms Thory’s home on Saturday for the photoshoot.

Mrs Ayres, 49, said: “It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It’s a country lady-style calendar so we have ladies climbing up a lorry, a gun shot, in the hay barn and in the horse box.

“Once they all got comfortable it was quite easy. The hardest part was the logistics in working out who would be willing to show what.

“They are amazing and I have total admiration for all of them for what they did in aid of charity.”

She added: “I put it on my Facebook page on Monday and overnight it got more than 4,000 hits. It’s running away at the moment. It went so well that I’ve been asked to do a male and a military wives version next year.
