Epilepsy sufferer Jo Mumford, 28, wants people to submit images for the calendar as she bids to raise £5,000 for an EEG machine for the Kent and Canterbury Hospital.
She said: “I wanted to do a calendar and let everyone take part. I didn’t want it to be all my own ideas and wanted other people’s input.
“I thought it could be a great way to let people promote what they are doing, and promote Herne Bay as well.
“I’ve already worked with artists who have donated prizes in raffle competitions.
“I think a calendar would be a great way to promote themselves.”
Jo has already raised £2,000 since setting up the Team Jo Epilepsy Foundation in March last year and now hopes a calendar will raise funds.
She said: “The machines would make a hell of a difference.
“At the moment, to have EEG tests people have to go to hospitals in London to measure seizures.
“It isn’t the most calming environment. A new machine here in Kent would allow people to be tested at home.
“It seems that lots of patients converge on London hospitals, adding to those waiting lists.
“It would be better if services could be more localised.”
The competition is being run until July 5 and is open to anyone from Herne Bay. Entries for a slot on the calendar cost £1.
Entries must be able to be scanned, so any 3D pieces must be photographed and sent to Jo@TeamJo-Epilepsy.org. You can also send A4 pieces by post to Team Jo Epilepsy Foundation, 4 Mill View Road, Herne, Herne Bay, CT67JE
