Not many people can say they have been played on screen by Dame Helen Mirren and on stage by everyone from Linda Bellingham to Anita Dobson!

HR & Compliance Director, Gill Forrester, and Financial Planner, Louise Phillips, were fortunate enough to rub shoulders with the inspiring Calendar Girl herself, Tricia Stewart, at today’s Cumbria Rural Women’s Growth Network event in Orton and are privileged to have had the opportunity to hear her absolutely amazing tale in person.

The movie Calendar Girls and the West End stage play of the same name are based on her story which followed the group of Women’s Institute members who initially aimed to raise £5,000 in memory of John Baker, husband of Angela – one of their group, who had died of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma…but who have (to date) managed to raise, phenomenally, over £3.5 million for Leukemia and Lymphoma Research.
