Pin-up calendar to support charity
THESE curvaceous pin-up girls are on a mission.
Joanne “Miss Legs La More” Legh and Tegan “Miss Cherry Von Sinner” Corbett are part of a team of 11 voluptuous women who will be photographed for a 1950s pin-up calendar in a bid to raise money for the local palliative care unit.
Owner of Vintage Bettie in Rockhampton, Lisa Jack, said she was inspired to create the fundraising calendar after nursing her mother-in-law until she died.
“At the same time my girlfriend lost her breast to breast cancer so I spent a lot of time at the palliative care unit and saw just how much these nurses do,” Lisa said.
The girls were involved in a pin-up parade in November and Lisa said they all looked fabulous, sparking the idea for the calendar.
But to make their dream become a reality, the girls need support from the community.
“We're hoping local businesses may be able to help out by becoming sponsors and in return advertising their business,” Lisa said.
“Our goal is to raise $5000 to have the calendar created.”
Proceeds from the calendar sales would go towards the palliative care unit at Rockhampton Hospital.
Lisa said she was very lucky to have the support of Morning Bulletin photographer Allan Reinikka and her step-daughter Chloe Jack for hair and make-up.
The calendar is designed to embrace healthy body image for all types of women.
“Women need to appreciate who they are no matter what size they are,” Lisa said.
