Press Release: 1 October 2002

Indigo Photographic is delighted to announce the release of its new 2003 calendar entitled 'The Students of Cambridge University', which will be on sale nationally from October 1. This high quality black and white calendar features female students from the University of Cambridge and will benefit Breakthrough Breast Cancer, which established the UK's first dedicated breast cancer research centre in 1999.

This unique product has been created to show the support of University of Cambridge students for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. The calendar has been produced with the generous support of the university, by a creative team comprising a number of its former students, including 'up and coming' young photographer Duncan Robertson and stylist Beth Button. The calendar features a foreword written by the charity's Chief Executive, Delyth Morgan.

The October release of the calendar coincides with the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month when charities, companies, health services and other organisations concerned about breast cancer focus activities during the month to raise funds, public awareness and promote national debate about the disease. This country has one of the highest incidences of breast cancer in the world with more than 39,000 women being diagnosed every year and more than 1,000 women dying from the disease every month.

Copies are available nationally at selected Calendar Club outlets, and via a dedicated website www.cambridgecalendar.co.uk. The recommended retail price is 9.95 and all proceeds (and a minimum of 2.00 per copy) will be donated directly to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

ENDS
