Croydon women bare all for charity calendar
PIPPA Middleton's delectable derriere may have captivated the nation – but these cheeky Croydon lasses are out to prove they can rival her.
The troupe have laid it all on the line for charity and this week celebrated the launch of their 'Worldly Assets' 2012-13 calendar, which covers April to March.
Each month features a cheeky pout from the scantily-clad girls who have been superimposed onto some the world's best-known landmarks, from the Eiffel Tower to the Amazon rainforest.
And at £10 a calendar the girls – aged between 28 and 34 – appear to be putting a modest price tag on their assets.

Faye Toner, from Purley, the brains behind the calendar, said: "I've done quite a lot of fundraising and just got fed-up of asking people for money for raffle tickets, which gets a bit stale.
"I just thought 'why don't we do something a bit more cheeky and fun'. Everyone was up for it.
"Not only was it fun, but it was actually quite liberating. At first we were all nervous about getting our bodies out.
"But we were drinking quite a lot of wine on the day of the shoot and by the time we were half cut we were wondering around in our thongs and comfortable with it.
"It's something your nan or your granddad would definitely laugh at. It's not over the top."
The photos were taken by a friend of the group, while another superimposed the images before printing began at Ormside Press, in Redhill, for Wednesday's launch.
Flight attendant Miss Toner, 31, of Brighton Road, who appears body-painted as a zebra in Serengeti National Park, said the inspiration for the revealing fundraising stunt came from the 2003 hit film Calendar Girls.
All funds raised from the sales will go to the Alice Visionary Foundation and Tumaini Homes of Hope – charities aiding young people with AIDS and HIV in Kenya.
Miss Toner added: "I really wanted to choose these charities after visiting Mombasa in January and seeing the conditions some of the children live in."
