BRAVE staff from The Alnwick Garden have bared all for a charity calendar.

The willing recruits have been photographed throughout the attraction with carefully positioned props and plants covering their modesty.

Their naked efforts feature in The Official 2012 Alnwick Garden Charity Calendar, which goes on sale from tomorrow.

Proceeds will be donated to The Alnwick Garden Trust, which seeks to change the cultural environment for the better and help people transform their conceptions, expectations and aspirations and those of their communities.

Images in the calendar include gardener Debbie pruning the roses in the Rose Garden and groundsman Rob tending to the oldest sycamore in the garden.

Others show head gardener Trevor mowing the lawn in front of the Grand Cascade and plant specialist Peter watering the flowers in the Ornamental Garden.

l The calendar has been shot by Garden volunteer Margaret Whittaker and will be available to buy from the attraction’s gift shop for £4.99.
