WOMEN can enjoy the sight of men in uniform ... and help a charity at the same time.
West Yorkshire firefighters are anxious to help a charity dedicated to building a children's hospice in the county - and they stripped to their waists for the calendar to prove it.
The `models' - all frontline firefighters with Red Watch at Bradford Fire Station - are the stars on the calendar which will raise around £15,000 for the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust.
The firefighters launched the calendar with Huddersfield actress Veronica Hart who is starring as Cinderella in this year's Christmas pantomime at Bradford's Alhambra Theatre.
Her family lives in Oakes and she has starred in London shows including Jesus Christ Superstar and Whistle Down The Wind.
She has also appeared in TV dramas including Casualty and The Bill.
The West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust, founded by Ainley Top mother Linda Senior, is raising money to build a children's hospice in Kirklees or Calderdale and already almost £250,000 has been raised for the scheme.
Linda said: "I went to see the firefighters and asked if there was any way they could help.
"They came up with the idea of the calendar and things went on from there.
"It is all very tastefully done and each photograph features a fire safety message along with a hunky fireman!"
Already 3,000 copies of the calendar have been printed and they sell for £4.99 each. Thanks to the generosity of Leeds printers Polestar every penny is destined for the charity.
Linda said: "It looks like it's going to be a sell-out and there's already talk of another calendar being done next year."
Leading Firefighter Paul Macnamara, who also serves with Red Watch, took all the photographs.
He said: "Most fire stations have a tradition of helping to raise money for charity and when we were approached by Linda we wanted to help."
Red Watch holds the world record for the fastest ever ladder climb. They set up a ladder outside Bradford Town Hall and climbed the equivalent height of Mount Everest in 24 hours.
The calendars are on sale at Wooldale Co-Op in Holmfirth and are also available from Bradford Fire Station.
