Ladies from the Cheshire branch of the Forward Ladies Networking Group will go “Bear Faced” for BBC Children in Need on Friday 8th November.
The ladies will team up with Crewe based commercial photographer, Johnathan Clover of Cloverleaf Images, and will hold the event at his studio on Middlewich Street.
All the ladies will attend devoid of make-up, apart from a Pudsey Pawprint and Johnathan will capture the fundraising spirit in a series of studio portraits.
The event is part of a nationwide campaign for BBC Children In Need called “Go BearFaced” with women across the country being encouraged to ditch the make up and go barefaced for the day all in aid of a fantastic cause.
Celebrities taking part in the campaign include Alex Jones from The One Show, singer Kimberley Walsh and Arlene Phillips.
Sue France, the North West Regional Manager for Forward Ladies says:
“As a ladies business networking group, we thought it was a great idea to hold one of our regular coffee morning events to help raise money for Children in Need.”
The event will run from 10.30am-12.30pm and is open to everyone – you don’t have to be a member of the Forward Ladies Networking Group.
Johnathan Clover says:
“I wanted to do something to support the “Go Bear Faced” day and photographers all around the country will be taking part.
The Cloverleaf studios are perfect for capturing images of “bear faced” business women and there’s plenty of room for networking at the studios too. It’s a great way to mix business and fundraising and I’m sure we’ll get some great shots!”
Tickets cost £9 for Forward Ladies members and £14 for non-members
(£5 of which goes to Children in Need).
