The Calendar Girls of Üzümlü
The Joint Üzümlü Group and Animal Care Üzümlü Cake (ACU) Bake fundraiser saw the release of the 2018 Calendar based on the Calendar Girls success story.
It would be surprising if anyone hasn’t heard of the hit movie, Calendar Girls, and the true story that inspired the film. In 1998 a group of women from a Yorkshire Women’s Institute wanted to raise some money for charity in honour of the husband of one of their members who had died of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The women aged between 45 – 65, fully supported by both their local WI and the National organization, produced a Calendar featuring their members in risque poses. It proved to be an instant hit with the initial print run selling out within a week. 10000 more calendars were printed and they sold out in three weeks. By December 1999, 88000 copies were sold and an incredible £450000 raised for leukemia research.
