Two Buckingham women are trying to resurrect the Buckingham charity calendar, and they’re looking for local companies to sponsor a page.

Jane Russell and Beth Tubridy, who both work at the University of Buckingham, want to create a calendar with scenes of Buckingham, with all proceeds from its sales going to Cancer Research UK.

Mrs Russell said: “So many people in my life have been affected by cancer. It’s a cause that’s very close to my heart.”

The plan is for a long, narrow calendar with a picture at the top of each page.

There will be space at the bottom for sponsors’ details.

Mrs Russell said: “I’m trying to get sponsorship from local businesses to cover the costs of printing the calendar and we then plan to sell them for £5 each. The sponsorship cost for a page is £200, or £100 for a half page.

So far, the university and BCQ Print have each agreed to sponsor a page.

Buckingham Camera Club is supplying the images.
