CALENDAR girls put their best foot forward as they prepare to wave goodbye to Wearside.

The cast have been wowing audiences at Sunderland Empire with original Calendar Girl Tricia Stewart even managing to make one of the performances.

It was Sunderland-born Tricia, 62, who suggested fellow members of the Rylestone and District WI do a nude calendar to raise funds for charity.

It sparked a global phenomenon raising £3million for Leukaemia Research, inspiring a blockbuster film starring Helen Mirren and the stage play, which is at the Sunderland Empire this week.
