The original Calendar Girls, from North Yorkshire, are preparing for a fundraising finale at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Calendar Girls were inspired by the death of a dearly-loved husband and friend, John Baker, to make the first ever “Alternative WI Calendar”.

In the 13 years since then, the girls have raised nearly £3m for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and have been the inspiration for the award winning film starring Julie Walters and Helen Mirren, as well as the most successful UK touring play ever.
