Charity calendar for Peak FM

North Derbyshire's UTV station Peak FM has unveiled its annual charity calendar. The 2008 edition features amateur models, as seen in our picture, who were nominated by themselves, friends and family.

Proceeds from the calendar will add to the £70,000 already raised by Peak FM for the Genesis Appeal and National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline.

The Genesis Appeal and National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline are two charities that are close to Peak FM breakfast presenter Becky Measures heart. Becky was the youngest woman in the country to undergo a preventive double mastectomy after discovering she inherited a cancer causing gene that increased her lifetime risk of contracting breast cancer to 85per cent.

I've got a really good feeling about the 2008 calendar, said Measures. The models have been so enthusiastic about it and the way it looks is completely different to anything we've put out before.

“So many people have worked on making this calendar better than ever and it's for two worthy causes. So many people are touched by breast cancer in one way or another and it can cause such heartbreak. It's wonderful to see so many people trying to help prevent the disease.

Peak FM Programme Controller Chris Buckley shares Becky's enthusiasm about the 2008 calendar. He told Becky gives everything she has in to making the calendars successful, said Buckley. Once again this demonstrates Peak FM's commitment to raising money for deserving causes.
