Starter Packs Bare AllThe girls at Starter Packs in Govan are showing their cheeky side in a calendar which they hope will raise £6,000 for the charity.

The ‘Govan Gals’ have bared all, almost, for the photographs which were taken in the kitchen of a house in Linthouse.

As the LOCAL NEWS hits the street, the calendar was expected to be on sale in the Starter Packs’ office in Burleigh Street at £9.99p each.

The idea came about a month ago when some of the girls were having a drink. ‘It seemed like a good idea at the time,’ said Sarah Findlay. ‘In the cold light of day we have gone through with it and are pleased with the end result.’

Sarah, project leader at Starter Packs, features in the calendar as Autumn Nights. She said: ‘The calendar has a 50’s retro theme, strategically positioned period items save our blushes. There are no skinny malinkies – the calendar proves real women exist.’

Starter Packs has been running in Govan for 20 years and provides essential items in a welcome pack for homeless families and single people taking up a permanent tenancy in the Greater Glasgow area. 

Sarah said: ‘Everyone who features in the calendar is either staff or a volunteer with Starter Packs or they are people who have used our service.’
