Calendar Girls and Boys
Anyone passing the Island Hall on Wednesday night may have been forgiven for thinking that a major emergency was taking place as both of Sark’s ambulances and all three fire tenders were parked outside. It was however the launch of ‘Sark to the Rescue’ a Calendar Girls style 2014 calendar featuring members of the island’s fire, police and ambulance service. The calendar has been produced by Sark-based photographers Sue Daly and Lydia Bourne and each of the 12 photographs were taken at key locations around the island including Point Robert Lighthouse, the Harbour Cafe, the Seigneurie, the Harbour Cafe, the Coupée, the Mermaid Tavern and the island’s prison. Half of the money from each calendar will be donated to Sark’s Emergency Services and the rest will be given to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, the charity that the original Calendar Girls themselves supported. The boardroom was packed for the launch where the images were shown on the large screen. Over two hundred calendars were sold and new recruit to the fire service Pippa Curtis raised £362 with a raffle. The calendar is for sale at £10 at the Island Hall, Gallery Stores, Sark Souvenirs, the Visitor Centre and Sark Glass Take Two. It can also be posted.
