A group of glamorous grannies in north Wales are baring all in the name of charity with their own calendar.

With a combined age of 1,053, the posing pensioners have already raised £6,700 selling 'The Wrinklies 2015' calendar and the woman behind the project 72-year-old Jenny Stephens says she hopes to raise £10,000.

Mrs Stephens, from Denbigh, was inspired to do the fundraiser after her 35-year-old niece Bethan lost her battle with cancer.

Life is too short to worry. Between us all we have racked up 1,053 years, but I think we all look fabulous for our age. Making the calendar has been such a laugh, but it's important to remember the real message we want to get over. Who cares about saggy bits and the odd wrinkle. We need to cherish our bodies whatever our age.
