Local band Loose Ends will be perfoming from 11am to launch the Just One Look Charity Calendar.
Mark Meakings, 64 of Bexhill on Sea, has produced a humorous 2015 seaside calendar titled “Just One Look” with all profits going to Prostate Cancer UK.
The A3 size high quality 2015 Just One Look Calendar goes on sale on the official launch day of Sunday, 3 August at the De La Warr Pavilion on Bexhill's seafront for just £9.95.
The unique calendar has been made in the same spirit as the famous cheeky seaside postcards from the 1950's. All photographs were taken on Bexhill's iconic seafront of promenades, gardens, beach huts, cafes and at the world famous Modernist De La Warr Pavilion.
Mark enlisted the help of his wife Christine and a brave group of local volunteer models, helpers, photographer and generous sponsors to produce the calendar.
The launch day promises to be fun, with laid back live music provided by the popular local band Loose Ends between 11am and 3pm, as well as the great attractions at the De La Warr Pavilion. Entrance is free and the calendars will be on sale all day.
Mark said: “I am looking forward to the launch and I’m delighted to be raising awareness and much needed money to help the fight against prostate cancer.”
There will be a limited print run and people can pre-order the calendar now and either collect them at the launch day or have them posted instead. Please visit www.prostatecancercalendar.org

Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “We’re delighted that Mark has decided to produce the calendar to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK. It is with support like this that we can help provide dedicated support and information to men and their families affected by prostate cancer and fund research to help fight the disease.”
“With over 40,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in the UK and one man dying every hour, it is our aim to help more men survive the disease and enjoy a better quality of life. We wish Mark every success with the calendar launch day.”
Prostate Cancer UK is currently engaged in its high profile ‘Men United v Prostate Cancer’ campaign, which aims to build a united front of men against the disease. Homeland star Damian Lewis, Game of Thrones hard man Charles Dance, Sir Michael Parkinson and rugby legend Will Carling - some of Britain’s most iconic figures – have already signed for Men United, a unique team ‘managed’ by comedian Bill Bailey.
