MEMBERS of a charity that helps people in one of the poorest countries in the world have released a 2012 calendar to help in their fundraising efforts.

The Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link has printed off 1,100 copies of the 1066 Country calendar. Robin Gray, the organisation’s honorary secretary , said: “I got a dozen local artists, big names like Annie Soudain, Annie Ray and Claire Fletcher, to contribute a watercolour of a local scene, from Bodiam to the Old Town. It’s beautifully produced, and at only £5 it makes a brilliant Christmas present to send to friends and family. We hope the money raised can be used towards replacing old equipment at the health centre in Hastings, Sierra Leone and pay towards employing a nurse midwife there.”

The calendar is available from the Hastings Information Centre or by ringing 01424 436603.
