BURLESQUE is the theme of a calendar which goes on sale next week in aid of an Oxfordshire breast cancer charity.

Witney businessman Chris Clinkard, who runs the Beautiful Linen Group, stepped into the breach when he found out that Against Breast Cancer, based in Abingdon, was not producing its own calendar this year. Last year, the charity’s Witney fundraising team put together a boudoir-themed calendar and it was a great success. This year, Chris decided that a collection of pictures of models dressed in naughty but nice burlesque style would be a winner.

He enlisted the help of former Britain’s Got Talent contestant Fabia Cerra, from Oxford, a local studio and photographers to line up a photoshoot with 20 amateur models.

The calendar, priced £5, will be launched at The Blue Boar in the Market Square, Witney, tomorrow, at 7pm.
