Kilted models flex their pecs for breast cancer research


A former Portlethen Academy pupil who has gone on to pursue a successful career in photography has teamed up with an army of kilted butlers to raise money for charity.

Kelly Duncan, owner of KAD Photography, has created the charity calendar alongside Aberdeen-based Premiere Production’s Kilted Butlers.

All profits from the cheeky calendar will be going to Aberdeen University’s Development Trust - Breast Cancer Research, in particular the projects regarding after care.

The calendar features teasing snaps from the four muscular young men and 25-year-old Kelly said she wanted to make a “Calendar Girls” style charity calendar with a twist. She said: “Instead of the women having the guts to show some skin, I decided to give us ladies a giggle by making it the men’s turn! Cancer is everywhere and seems to be leaving no person untouched or unaffected.

“I wanted to create something that would make everyone and anyone affected by breast cancer forget their worries for a second, and smile. This calendar is tastefully cheeky and has been a lot of fun to make, but has came with a painful reminder about why we are doing this.

“As cheeky and fun as this calendar is, it is for a heart breaking cause, and I can’t wait to hand over a healthy donation to Aberdeen University’s Breast Cancer Research!”

One of the Kilted Butlers James Bennett said: “As a medical student I have realised that so much inspiration and hope can be given from outside of the laboratories and clinics.

“I hope this calendar can highlight that ‘laughter is the best medicine’ and go on to give sufferers strength through laughter and a bit of cheeky fun.”
