Mansfield’s Naked Men Calendar in aid of NHS now on sale

Posted onPosted on 14th Sep

People are being urged to get behind an unusual way to raise money for King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton — and the family of a former ambulance worker who died from Covid-19.

As featured in the News Journal in May, a group of Mansfield men bared all again six years after their naked calendar raised £5,500 for the town’s Fountaindale School.

This time they hope to make £30,000 for the NHS as a thank you for its work in fighting the coronavirus.

They are also raising money for the family of a former ambulance worker, Charlie Goodwin, of Bilsthorpe, who became one of the local victims of Covid-19 in April.

Now the calendar — which runs for 16 months from September 2020 — is available to buy or for collection for those who have already pre-paid. All calendars mus now be paid for on collection.

The calendar costs a minimum of £5.99 and for every one that is sold, 50p will be donated to the family of Charlie. However, people buying the calendar can donate more if they wish.

The aim is to raise around £30,000.

One of the men behind the project, Shaun Eden-Taylor, whose son George went to Fountaindale, said: “We are hoping to sell at least 2,000 copies. This means £1,000 will be able to go to Charlie’s family to help them with ongoing costs due to this tragic situation they’ve found themselves in. Then over £29,000 will go to King’s Mill Hospital, our local NHS.

“There has been a great amount of support from all the men involved from businesses and sports groups across Mansfield.”

Mansfield business Linney Print has printed the calendars free.

One of the sponsors and models is Malk Hall, of Hall-Fast Industrial Supplies, Mansfield, who said: “This really is a good news story of not only local Mansfield blokes getting their kit off to raise much-needed cash for our local hospital, but also local businesses and people donating auction prizes.

“It really has brought the local community of Mansfield together in these difficult and uncertain times.”

Other models in the calendar are: Gareth Bull, who has been the main sponsor with Debdale Sports Club, Matthew Back, Neil McKie, Daniel Welsh, Kevin Baldwin, Ian Patterson, James Bennett, Ryan McKenna, Marc Scotney, Adam Glenn, Paul Swales, Jamie Hemmings, George Thompson, Nathan Eggleshaw, Adam Bates and Lee Chapman.
