At Cleveland National Seniors, a woman handed me a nude calendar 2014!

The nude calendar the lady from Cleveland National Seniors handed me turned out to be from her retirement village who had produced a nude calendar as a fundraiser for ”Look Good Feel Better.”

This fundraiser helps women manage the appearance-related side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

I flicked through the hilarious and very cheeky photos and who should I find playing piano in the all-together? It was none other than the first man on Queensland television, Hugh Cornish in the nude? What a great yarn!

Don’t miss out! The nude calendars are available. Call Renaissance Retirement Living on 3820 7700.
