Calendar Girls at Tangmere

September, 2009

One rainy evening early in August Tangmere Military Aviation Museum was the venue for a unique photo shoot. Three members of SWAG (Servicemen’s Wives and Girlfriends) arrived to be photographed for a ‘Calendar Girls’ 2010 calendar which will be sold as part of the fund raising activities of the Help for Heroes charity.

Despite the rain the girls bravely posed next to our Sea Vixen aircraft before moving inside for the ‘banner’ shot shown here.

The Museum supported Help For Heroes earlier this year when it collected over £1200 in entry contributions at our annual Open Day in March, and therefore was pleased to continue that support by providing the location free of charge for the photography.

The calendar will be on sale from September 14th and costs £7.49 plus £2.50 postage. All profits from the calendar go direct to the Charity so if you want to help support Help For Heroes then why not purchase a copy for yourself? You can find out more about the background to the idea and place your order by logging on to www.swagcalendar.co.uk.
