Kat’s kittens lose their mittens for Help for Heroes calendar

Published:  09 February, 2011

CHELTENHAM: Kohler Mira’s marketing assistant Kathryn Griffiths has mobilized her mates to produce a naughty-but-nice 2011 calendar to raise money for armed forces charity Help for Heroes.

Entitled Darling, Come Home Soon, the calendar features 11 lovelies – nine of whom work at Mira – in a variety of poses and various stages of undress ranging from the classical to the burlesque. The overall theme though is 1950s – albeit a bit more heartbreakers, than Heartbeat!


Kathryn said: "I wanted to support our troops and decided to revisit the saucy calendar idea pioneered by the Yorkshire WI ladies. I asked the girls at work and there was a great response." The calendar girls hope to raise up to £4,000 for the charity. The calendar’s launch attracted more than 50 guests and raised £150 in its own right.


Help for Heroes aims to provide direct, practical help and support for service personnel wounded in the service of the country. Its current focus is for grants to create a series of regional ‘Recovery Houses’ nationwide and serve as the last stage of rehabilitation before a serviceman, or woman, returns to unit or transits back into civilian life.
