IN tribute to the ladies who Dare to Bare‚ the charity that raises money for cancer research, The Hop Poles pub in Alton held a special launch party to celebrate the photograph included in this year’s calendar which was taken at the pub.
Some of Alton ladies who posed for the picture – naked but discreetly hidden behind the beer pumps – were also at the Mount Pleasant Road pub to enjoy a fun evening which included a disco and a raffle which raised money for the charity. Last year the pub raised £1,600.
Twenty new ladies posed for this year’s calendar alongside several who featured last year, while different locations were used, including a couple of outdoor shoots where one lady was even brave enough to be photographed on the back of a horse.
Now in the printing stage, there will be an initial run is of 300 copies but if interest and pre-orders look good more will be printed to meet demand and raise more money for the charity.
