WOMEN’S Institute members from Sheffield are making a splash by following in the footsteps of their Calendar Girls predecessors - but have pledged to keep their clothes on for the photoshoots.

Seven Hills WI are creating a calendar to support the Parents’ Association of Children with Tumours and Leukaemia, after the charity helped President Lindsay Garfitt’s niece.

Three-year-old Isabelle Touhey was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare cancer, last summer.

Seven Hills WI’s 2014 calendar will feature famous Sheffield landmarks and lots of the group’s 125 members.

Lindsay said: “We are so excited to be creating our very own calendar to celebrate our wonderful city, and raise money for a charity very close to my heart.

“We’ve shot the first three photos and will be doing more over the coming months. We will be keeping most of what we’re featuring a surprise, but we can confirm there won’t be any nakedness!”

The WI are also donating money from their monthly raffles to PACT.
