The agricultural students at Newcastle University have stripped off in very nippy conditons to raise money for the brain injuries charity Headway. One of their fellow students, Simon Hales, suffered a life changing accident in 2009 while in his second year at Newcastle. A documentary called My new Brain was shown on Channel 4 in August and can be watched here.

Thanks so much purchasing details to be found in comments.

Re:
Calendars can be bought by post or online. For a BACS transaction please email a.f.langmead@ncl.ac.uk or by sending a cheque made out to Miss A Langmead, Stock House, Sturminster Newton, Dorset DT10 2BG for the full amount, stating clearly the single address the calendar is to be posted to.

Copies cost 6 each or 10 for two, P & P is 1.50 per calendar.

Please support this good cause and do have a laugh every month over the bravery of these youngsters, it was extremely cold as they posed on several different farm locations in the north east of England. I have just sent off for our batch. No guesses as to what we are giving for Christmas!

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar A very worthwhile cause - a friend of ours fell down stairs and hit his head on the flagstones of the hall. He had a very serious brain injury. It took him a very long time to recover, but recover he did. It was a devastating time though for both him and his wife.

Re:
Milkmaid's Avatar A couple of friends of my daughters are in it, as they are fresher Agrics, They will be amazed if I can buy a calender without going through them. These young people don't realise how small a world it is.
