Members of a Wisbech society set up shop at Tesco for two days to sell copies of their charity calendar.

During their successful residency, The Gadabout Girls, who are members of Wisbech’s Red Hat Society, sold 80 copies of Woman Through the Ages.

The calendar recreates significant moments from women’s history, paying tribute to everything from the Suffragettes at the beginning of the 20th century to Girl Power in the 1990s.

The ladies have 100 copies left of their calendar to sell - once they achieve this, they will have reached their £4,000 fundraising target for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity close to all their hearts.

Carol Faulkner, Queen Gadabout, said: “It was brilliant. We just wish we could have stayed for longer. Everybody was really happy to see us and customers were asking us to come back.
