Businesses in the Buff!
Posted on Tue 15th Jan, 2019 in: Blog
It all started with a trip to the theatre to see Calendar Girls... and now Ripponden has it's own version!
The 2019 'Businesses in the Buff' calendar idea came from Penny at Stanley's Kitchen, and managed to get 27 other local businesses involved, all donating their time and effort for Charity!
The Calendar included 24 companies being photographed 'in the buff', only covered by their businesses' goods, 2 taking control of the photos and editing together, 1 managing the printing, and 1 venue for all the photos! A lot of time and effort has gone into this calendar, and sales were expected to be high!
All proceeds are going towards 3 charities- Overgate Hospice, Forget Me Not Children's Hospice, and Chihuahua Chatz for all Dawgz, 3 amazing charities who without fundraising and charitable donations, wouldn't be able to operate.
So far, the expected figure is an outstanding £3,500! Everyone who took part hasn't charged for their time and effort, the materials used to put together, the space used for taking the photos, the photographers- everyone has taken part purely to raise money for Charity.
Watch this space for the grand total that this calendar has raised!
Many thanks to all local businesses who took part, and everyone who has bought a calendar.
