A GROUP of Largs swimmers have turned calendar girls for a daring charity fundraiser.

The Largs Delicious Dookers formed last year to boost wellbeing and form friendships through regular dips in the bay at the foot of May Street.

The are now baring all to raise funds for charity SAY Women, which offers safe semi-supported accommodation and emotional support for those aged 16 to 25 who are survivors of abuse, rape or sexual assault.

Photographer Francesca Pearce was behind the lens as the ladies posed up to raise cash for the cause.

She joked: "We sneaked around Largs trying to avoid being spotted for the months to create the calendar.

"Largs local businesses generously contributed towards the printing so that all of proceeds go to the charity.

"It’s a brilliant end product - with a few surprises."

Tamsen Collins, who helped set up the cold water swimming group, said: "We started the dooking group in October and it just grew and grew.

"Francesca saw us on the beach and asked us about taking some photos and then between us we came up with the calender idea.

"We literally met whenever we could to get the calendar photos taken - and it was generally very cold!"

Francesca added: "We even included the Wee Paper in some of the tasteful poses.

"We took the idea from the Calendar Girls film and just set up a number of freestyle photos.

"These ladies have done a marvellous job braving the elements for this."

Tamsen said: "Not everyone is as lucky as us and that is part of the reason why we picked a women's charity that helps others.

"We had so many laughs doing it and hopefully it will raise plenty for this great cause."

The calendar, which was produced by Largs Printing Company, is on sale at Costa Coffee, David Gavin Ironmonger, Boutique Hair Spa, Room, The Anchor, Indigo Eats, the Post Office, Coast Hair Salon, The Moorings and Fishworks.

Tamsen added: "The whole concept of the ladies only group is that everyone is made very welcome and we meet every Sunday morning at 9am at the bottom of May Street for a cool dip in the sea.

"The mental health aspect of it is very important to get across - we also look out for each other and we are very mindful of the safety aspect of it as well.
