Now a brave group of NHS workers from Attleborough is hoping to raise thousands of pounds to help breast cancer patients in the county after launching a nude calendar.

The ladies, who have been dubbed the Pink Pals, gathered to celebrate the Calendar Girls-style fundraiser on Friday to mark the latest calendar for 2010.

Fifteen women, who work at the two medical centres in Attleborough, decided to take on the challenge in December in memory of a friend and colleague who lost her fight with breast cancer in 2005.

Holkham Beach, North Norfolk Railway, Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, Lotus Cars, Norfolk Lavender, the English Whisky Company, the Norfolk Broads, and Norwich City Football Club's team bath, were some of the locations where the Pink pals stripped off earlier this year.

Ten of the NHS workers returned to Peter Beales Roses, in Attleborough, - another location for the photo shoot -for the launch of the 2010 calendar, which goes on sale today.

The Pink Pals hope their efforts will raise at least £5,000 for the Breast Cancer Resource Fund at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Some of the locations were sourced with help from Norfolk Tourism.

Ann Trett, who bared all at Norfolk Lavender for the July photo, said all of the participants were keen to get involved for the good cause.

“Breast cancer affects us all in one way or another whether you are a sufferer, survivor, family member or friend. We hope the money raised will help Norwich Breast Cancer Resource Fund improve the quality of life of breast cancer sufferers in the county by enabling them to continue to provide support groups, clothing, complimentary therapies and much more,” she said.

Lydia Smith, team manager for Norfolk Tourism, added: “Ann and her team have produced a superb calendar, with a great sense of fun, which showcases some of Norfolk's finest visitor destinations. I wish them success with their fundraising for such a worthwhile cause.”
