MEMBERS of a Bridgwater gym plucked up the courage to strip off in front of the camera for a fundraising calendar for 2009.

Fitness fanatics at the Trimwise gym in Eastover shed their clothing and positioned themselves behind various exercise equipment to pose for a Calendar Girls-style calendar aimed at raising money for the British Skin Foundation.

Selina Rendle, of Trimwise, said: “Everyone was really up for doing it and they all had a great time having their photos taken for the calendar."

More than 200 copies had already been sold by the start of December, with more on order for customers, she added.
