LIMERICK photographer Ken Coleman’s picture above is part of a new charity calendar aiming to raise funds for Milford Care Centre.

The ‘Big C’ calendar was the brainchild of Sabrina Higgins and Melanie Hunt, who are both survivors of cancer and approached Ken and fellow photographers Billy Hayes and Darren Ryan to put together a portfolio with a boxing theme that portrayed the “upbeat fighting attitude” of those involved.

The shoot took place in St Francis Boxing Club and features women from all different age groups from across the city.

The calendar was sponsored by several city businesses, and is for sale in Niall Colgan Hairdressing, The Strand, The George, The Blind Pig, Na Piarsaigh, Corbally and Castletroy pharmacies and other outlets.
