A charity calendar, which recreates significant moments from women’s history, has raised more than £3,100 for MacMillan.
The Gadabout Girls, who are members of Wisbech’s Red Hat Society, have sold hundreds of copies of Woman Through the Ages, which pays tribute to everything from the Suffragettes at the beginning of the 20th century to Girl Power in the 1990s.
Every decade for the past 100 years has been recreated in the calendar.
The inspiration behind the calendar is Queen Gadabout Carol Faulkner’s husband Tony, who was diagnosed with cancer four years ago.
Mrs Faulkner said: “Cancer is something we are all affected by. My husband has cancer at the moment and without Macmillan’s support he would not be doing as well as he is now.

“Tony did all the artwork and photography. We could not have done it without him.
“Everybody did such a lot to sell this calendar and we’re thrilled to have raised that amount.”
