When Sam Barrett took over a Bicester pub she started looking for a way to bond with her regulars.

Now the Hundred Acres landlady says she will find it difficult to look them in the eye after persuading them to bare all for charity.

Since her mother Valerie Purbrick, 60, of Botley, was treated at Oxford’s Churchill Hospital for lung cancer, Mrs Barrett had wanted to say thank you.

Now she hopes to replicate the success of the Yorkshire WI members who produced a nude calendar to raise cash for Leukaemia Research.

The women’s calendar sold thousands of copies and their story was made into a successful film.

Last weekend Mrs Barrett’s photography student daughter Chloe Straiton, 18, took the 2012 calendar’s 12 shots of naked pubgoers and staff members, including her mother.

Fourteen volunteers, including a biker, a businessman and twins, all stripped off to show their support for the hospital.

Each shot includes the naked models with their modesty hidden behind strategically placed items around the pub, in Hart Place.

Mrs Barrett, 37, said: “I couldn’t expect my staff to do it if I didn’t do it.

“We had various poses around the pub with all necessary bits hidden.

“I was a bit nervous about stripping off, but it was all for fun and for a great charity.

“I don’t think I will look at the locals in the same way again.

“The Churchill Hospital did wonders with mum, and I thought if I could do something to help, I would.”

Mrs Purbrick was diagnosed with lung cancer in October last year and had an operation to remove part of her lung.

She has since been given the all-clear and recently returned to work at Marks & Spencer in Queen Street, Oxford, where she has been an employee for the past 40 years.

Miss Straiton, a final year photography student at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College, Banbury, who also posed for the calendar, said: “It was an experience — a good experience.

“When everyone stripped off it was funny at first, but when I started taking the photographs professionalism took over.”

She said the difficult part of her job was trying to keep the body parts that should be covered, covered.

Miss Straiton added: “At a normal shoot you would touch the models and say put this arm there, but on this one you couldn’t.”

She also plans to use the calendar as part of her portfolio for her final exams.

Calendars will be available before Christmas from the Hundred Acres pub, and Shakespeare pub, off Shakespeare Drive, and will cost £5.
