THESE cheeky ladies have bared all to raise money for a children’s charity.

Parysa Sech convinced 11 of her friends, dubbed the Hampshire Roses, to take part in the saucy calendar in aid of the Fareham-based Kids charity.

The 25-year-old, who appears as Miss October, worked part-time at the charity until last summer, but wanted to stay involved with its work.

Parysa, of Furzehall Avenue, Fareham, said: ‘I ran the Great South Run for them last year and I’m doing the London marathon for them next year.

‘But people get bored when you just ask for money all the time. So I thought this would be a good way to do it instead – this way people get something for their money.’

And getting people involved didn’t prove to be a problem.

‘I contacted all my friends in the area to see who would be keen,’ she said. ‘And pretty much all of them said “yes”.’

Professional photographer and family friend Jaimes Ede took the pictures at Chesapeake Mill in Wickham.

And Parysa kept it in the family too – younger sister Shirin is Miss November, while her older sister Gemma’s employers Jellyfish Print Solutions contributed to the printing costs.

Nicola Costar, 24, from Maylings Farm Road in Fareham, also known as Miss March, said: ‘Parysa’s one of my really close friends. A couple of us were thinking about doing some fundraisers anyway, so when she suggested this I thought it was a really good idea.’

Parysa added: ‘I wanted it to be a bit cheeky, but not too revealing and we worked quite closely with Kids to make sure they were happy with it.’

The calendar will be sold at Chicago Rock Cafe in Fareham on Thursday, December 15 from 8.30pm. It costs £5 plus p&p from hampshireroses.bigcartel.com
