GPH builders’ merchants staff bare all for charity

Published:  29 March, 2016

Staff from GPH Builders Merchants stripped off for the company's charity calendar and helped to raise vital funds for two north east charities. The team of brave employees from the builders’ merchants, which has branches in Westhill, Inverurie and Stonehaven, posed for a series of creative photos for use in the company's 2016 'naked' calendar. The photos, taken by Aberdeen photographer Carol Frost, tastefully gave the impression that staff members were naked.

GPH customers were then asked to make a donation to secure their copy of this limited edition calendar, raising £2,090, with proceeds being split between Alzheimer Scotland and CLAN. With over 90,000 people with dementia in Scotland and more than 4,200 in Aberdeenshire, money raised by GPH will help Alzheimer Scotland ensure that none of them have to face dementia alone. All money raised for CLAN goes towards providing support for anyone affected by cancer in the north east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

GPH sales and marketing director Nikki Mortimer said: "We had a lot of fun during the photo shoot, and the end result was fantastic - I'm sure the photos will continue to bring a smile to people's faces throughout 2016. We are extremely grateful to all employees who took part, and to our customers who helped raise over £2,000 for such worthy causes."
