Drinkers at The Dartmouth Arms in Snowdon Road, Burnhill Green, near Pattingham, are raising money for Cancer Research UK from the 2019 calendar.

The cheeky photo shoot, by Midlands photographer Jim Mayer of Gingersnaps Photography, features the male regulars posing naked in and around the pub.

The models, all local businessmen, threw themselves into the project with some even supplying their own novelty props to hide their modesty.

Rima Morris from the Dartmouth, who organised the fundraiser, said: “We did a few events for Cancer Research last year, including a charity auction and a Mr and Mrs Quiz, but this has definitely been the most hilarious.

“They were all such good sports and turned up at the pub for the photo shoot prepared to do almost anything. I honestly didn’t know where to look.”

The models taking part included former professional footballer Graham Newton, John ‘Grenny’ Grensinger, Dave Ward, Steve Wright, Dave Cooke, Bill Hatton, Jon Tandy and Richard Webster.

John Grensinger, in his Mr January pose, brought along his ski props. He said: “We had a brilliant time, it was really good fun – and all for such a good cause.”

Other months feature the ‘calendar boys’ playing pool, stoking the fire and enjoying dinner in the pub restaurant.

The calendar is available to buy from The Dartmouth priced £14 – but they are selling fast.
