A cheeky new 2019 calendar is being launched in Taunton next month in aid of charity.
The “All Walks of Life Calendar” is being organised by Fon Cosens of Taunton. The idea came to her whilst attending a concert in Cardiff with her friend Tania and she mentioned to her that she would like to do “Calendar Girl“.
Fon commented; “The All Walks of Life Calendar is something I have wanted to do for a long time and when my husband’s good friend Neal Challice died after suffering with a brain tumour in September 2015 after a long fight, I thought maybe this is the time I should do it. I come from Thailand & I lived in Ao Nang Krabi for 15 years before I decided to live permanently in the UK in 2012. Here in Taunton I have met so many beautiful friends who have come from all walks of life.”
The launch party will be held at Somerset Country Cricket Club, Taunton on 15th September 2018 from 7.00pm to 1.00am.
The fun evening will consist of;
Finger food buffet
30 minutes dance show
45 minutes comedy show: Arnold Gutbucket
2 hours live music from: Man From Funkle

Geraldine Pipping, director of fundraising for The Brain Tumour Charity said: “We are incredibly grateful to Fon for supporting The Brain Tumour Charity and for raising funds for and awareness of this devastating disease.”
“We receive no government funding and rely entirely on voluntary donations and gifts in wills, so it’s only thanks to supporters like Fon and her family and friends that we can progress towards our twin goals of doubling survival and halving the harm caused by brain tumours.”
“The tragic loss of Neal to a brain tumour is a fierce reminder of why we have to find a cure for this devastating disease. His memory and that of all of those who are affected by brain tumours will continue to inspire us every day as we work towards that goal. “We wish Fon and her friends from All Walks of Life the best of luck for next month’s Launch Party we are sure it will be a wonderful and memorable evening!”
Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 in the UK. Almost 11,000 people are diagnosed each year with a primary brain tumour, including 500 children and young people – that’s 30 people every day. Over 5,000 people lose their lives to a brain tumor each year.
