Dancers launch new charity calendar

Yetminster’s Dollywood Dancers celebrated their sixth birthday with afternoon tea and a birthday cake at the town’s Crafty Times tea room and also took the opportunity to launch their 2007 charity calendar.

Last year’s calendar raised a substantial sum for St Margaret’s Hospice and this year founder Val Cookson decided its theme would be even more elaborate with the beneficiaries being Cardiac Rehab at Yeovil Hospital and CRY Cardiac Risk in the Young.

The Dollywoods were joined by all those who had contributed towards their all-day calendar shoot at Chetnole Mill where they were loaned four period cars for the 1920s setting. The day began with a spring wedding followed by a summer picnic, autumn race meeting and winter outing.

The calendar will be available in either full colour or sepia to give it a period feel, from many local outlets.
