Staff at a Gravesend pub bare all for naked charity calendar

Staff at the Millers Cottage pub in Gravesend have stripped off for charity in a naked calendar photo shoot.

Girls at the Shrubbery Lane watering hole are raising cash for the EllenorLions Hospices and say copies of the calendar are going down quicker than a shot at a stag do.

They presented the charity with a cheque for £5,000 at the calendar's official launch and hope this is the first of many hand-overs.

Pub manager Glynis Kean, from Northfleet, was the project's inspiration and took part in the shoot.

She said: "I had made a large frame containing a print of each calendar girl to hang in the pub. On the launch night a customer suggested I auction it, so we did and it ended with just two regulars bidding and it went for £550. At the end of the evening they each gave me £200 for the EllenorLions and donated the picture back to the pub."

The pictures were taken, free of charge, by Gravesend-based photographer Julie Stokes, who runs Jo Jo's photography studio in Wrotham Road. They include girls cooking, playing darts and lying on the bar.

Mrs Kean said Gravesham's MP Adam Holloway had already requested a calendar for his office.
