Bike babe calendar girls boost Roxi care appeal
BIKER babes who donned leathers raised nearly £3,000.
The Bikes and Birds 2014 calendar was put together by Linda Main in aid of the Help Roxi Walk appeal launched by parents, Joe Aldrich and Adi Martinkovicova, of New Town, Colchester.
They want to raise £50,000 for their daughter Roxi, who has cerebral palsy, to have surgery in the US which will enable her to walk.
Linda, who helps organise the annual Cosmic Puffin Festival on Mersea, pulled together pals brave enough to pose on bikes.
She said: “We held the shoot at Mersea Youth Camp and, despite wind and rain, the photos have been a real success.”
Two hundred calendars were printed, but only 30 are left. They cost £10, plus £3.50 postage. Order by emailing ByrdsandByikes@gmail.com.
- The appeal has raised more than £23,000. For more information, visit the appeal website or the Facebook page.
