A bold bald move has seen calendar girl Kate Harrison bare all in the name of charity.

But this naked calendar comes with a twist, as she is one of 12 women exposing their bald heads in aid of the charity Alopecia UK.

The group all suffer from alopecia, a condition where the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles and causes hairloss.

Kate said: “I have never done anything like this before, in fact I could never have imagined myself being part of such a project, but I am so pleased to have been a part of it.

“I hope that we are able to use this to gain awareness of alopecia, and raise funds for Alopecia UK who have helped me in such a big way over the last two years.”

Alopecia UK is a small charity, run primarily by volunteers, which offers one-to-one support, multiple support groups across the UK, and weekend retreats for thousands of men, women and children each year.

The condition affects an estimated 100,000 people in the UK, and Alopecia UK also funds research and helps to spread awareness.
