Men strip naked for calender - picture

A SAUCY calendar has raised nearly £1,000 in just over a week for the hospital that's treated a terminally ill Furnace Green lad since birth.

Family and friends of Harry Shrubb put together the Cheeky Chappy's Charity Calendar to help other children with the same heart condition as the two-and-a-half year old.

And the calendar, which shows some of Crawley's finest male talent in their birthday suits, has already sold more than 400 copies since its launch on November 10.

Harry's mum Jacqui Shrubb, 34, of Laurel Close, said: "The launch party was great and we raised nearly 1,000 with a raffle and selling copies of the calendar.

"I couldn't believe it when one of the models asked for 45 copies to give to family and friends and to sell on.

"Harry made an appearance at the launch.

"He came for an hour and we gave him the microphone to see if he wanted to say anything but he started crying, I think he was a bit overwhelmed."
