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.
All media inquiries related to the calendar should be directed
