Hockey and cricket players will be stripping off to strike a pose for a fundraising Calendar Girls-style calendar.

Members of Wisbech’s Hockey and Cricket Clubs are hoping to raise money for improvements to their shared clubhouse, in Harecroft Road.

But the groups are now putting out an appeal for sponsors to help fund the costs of the project. Fiona Hamer-Philip, captain of the hockey club’s seconds team, is hoping to find businesses willing to spend £50 on sponsoring a month in the calendar.

Miss Hamer-Philip came up with the idea of the fun calendar.

She said: “Each team organises a social to raise money for the club and this year we thought we’d do a Calendar Girls-style calendar and get the whole club involved.

“We are hoping to update the changing rooms and if we could raise more than £500 I would be happy with that.

“This is all going to be done in good humour. Everyone seems really keen to get involved, which shows the team spirit within the clubs.”

The calendar will be following a cricket and hockey theme.

So far the project has attracted two sponsors – Simply Interiors and Salon 2 – but more are needed.

If you would like to support the clubs contact Miss Hamer-Philip on 07930 656720.
