A SPECIAL calendar filled with with Shirley people and places has been released in aid of Motor Neurone Research.

Amateur photographer Richard Wise has put the 12-piece limited edition feature calendar together in memory of Malcolm Ashby –  a former RAF photographer who died from Motor Neurone disease in 2014.

The calendar features the annual Donkey Derby held in Shirley park on the front and inside has 12 special photographs Shirley ‘People and Places’.

Richard said: “I had a lot of fun designing the calendar and meeting the truly special people I photographed – each of whom I’d like to thank.”

He added he would also like to thank Paper and Print for their invaluable help and expertise in helping make the project a reality.

The calendar can be bought from Classic Meats, on Stratford Road, for £8.99 each. All the money made from the sales will go to charity.
