Brave actresses bared all in a production of Calendar Girls that raised more than £1,000 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, in West Wickham, last week.

Theatre 62’s production of the popular film starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters sold out all six nights at the Wickham Theatre Centre, in Corkscrew Hill from Monday to Saturday.

Calendars of the cast were sold at the theatre over the six nights, mirroring the play’s true story about a branch of the Women’s Institute raising cash for cancer research by hiding their modestly behind carefully placed plants, cakes and other objects.

June Barnett, Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research fundraiser, said: “I am thrilled with, and so grateful for, the money raised for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and would like to thank Theatre 62 for its support.”
