TWO pals have bared all for a charity calendar which could be the first step towards the building of a new orphanage in Kenya.

Lauren Kolade and Antony McGee’s creation - also starring friends who have stripped off – is on sale now in Sheffield’s HMV stores and is selling well.

Both have volunteered while travelling and want to set up the orphanage with their charity, Be The Change, after witnessing abject poverty in Africa.

Lauren, aged 21, of Bramall Lane, said: “We’re both passionate about it as we’ve been doing charity work for the past couple of years.

“We wanted to do it in Africa because I have been there five times and it is definitely needed, the poverty there is terrible.”

The friends have already raised £2,000.

But it’s a drop in the ocean - they need £20,000 to set up the orphanage.
