A GROUP of Doncaster bingo players who have shed several stones between them are celebrating their weight loss by baring all for a charity calendar.

The ladies from Polton Close, Stainforth, who all attend their local Tenants and Residents Assocation meetings, have lost 6st 10lbs between them.

So they decided to celebrate by showing off their trim new figures in all their glory.

The lasses are baring all for a calendar the proceeds from which will be split between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, the Chatsfield Suite at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and forces charity Help for Heroes.

One of the fundraisers, Mary Nesbitt, said: “The money from the weigh-ins will help to fund the print run of the calendar and every penny will be split between our chosen charities.

“The photos for the calendar are really tasteful, but it took some courage to strip off for the camera.”

Nyssa Hird, who works for St Leger Homes but is also a professional photographer, will take the shots.
