TWO Taunton RSPCA officers have bared all for a cheeky calendar to raise much-needed cash for the charity.
RSPCA chief inspector John Pollock and animal collection officer Tony Frow work at the West Hatch Centre near Taunton and revealed all for the charity.
John is the driving force behind the calendar and also starred as Mr February, with Tony taking on August.
John said: “We have all been set the task of thinking of fundraising initiatives and I have always had the thought that this could be a good fundraiser if done properly and tastefully.
“The majority of charity calendars are bought by women at Christmas as stocking fillers, so we decided to use male officers as the models for this first one - and if they sell like hotcakes, then who knows what we will do next year?
“This whole project has been a great team effort and I take my hat off to everyone who has come forward to offer their services as models.”
Calendars are £5 or three for £10.
To buy send a cheque payable to the RSPCA to Calendar Request, RSPCA RHQ, Blackhat Lane, Bakers Hill, Exeter, EX2 9TA. Or for more call 07715-540207 or e-mail Askuse@rspca.org.uk.
