A calendar of students hoping to become the male answer to the Calendar Girls is now on sale after securing sponsorship with a little help from the Epsom Guardian.

In June 12 upper-sixth form pupils at the private Ewell Castle School, in Church Street, Ewell, stripped off on their last day, and were photographed with only some strategically-placed letters, spelling out the school’s name, to cover their modesty - with a banner of the photo then being hung from the main school building.

Now the boys have produced a 2013 charity calendar, featuring one scantily clad hunk a month, and its designer, former Ewell Castle student Jonathan Keung, 18, said this newspaper's coverage of the venture helped him to secure the funding they needed to get it printed.

He said: "As soon as the article appeared in the Epsom Guardian, I got lots of emails and now we are all ready to go and we’ve had a positive response already.  I was delivering the calendars to the shops last week and the people said they loved the idea."

The calendar is £9, with proceeds going to Help for Heroes and The Prostate Cancer Charity.
