If you happened to be passing the Big 6 pub early one morning recently and noticed the windows covered in newspaper, you probably wouldn’t have guessed what was happening within.

A dozen of the finest female customers have bravely shed their clothes and showed off their assets in a naked photoshoot.

Landlady Lesley Baldwin came up with the idea after her sister, Julie Patterson, passed away in the hospice in July of this year.

Lesley wanted to show her appreciation for all the Elland hospice had done for Julie and her family.

She recruited photographer - and pub regular - Jess Smethurst to take the pictures and recruit the models.

Jess put the women, who range in age from mid 20s to mid 50s, at ease.

All are new to modeling, but all said there had been a real spirit of camaraderie during the photo sessions, and their bravery was helped along by a glass or two of breakfast Bucks Fizz being served.

Elland based Shark Design and Marketing, and printing company Waddington and Ledger have together generously offered their services free of charge, and with kind sponsorship from Keep Safe Self Storage and several local breweries, all money raised from the sale of the calendars will go to Overgate Hospice.

The calendars will be on sale at the pub, on Thomas Street West, King Cross, Halifax, for a minimum donation of £5.

It’s already causing quite a stir amongst pub goers, so the organisers are confident the calendar will prove popular after the official launch night on December 1.
