Ryanair Cabin Crew Strip Off For 2010 Calendar
€110,000 CALENDAR PROCEEDS GO TO “KIDS” CHARITY
Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (11th Nov) launched its 2010 Ryanair Cabin Crew Charity Calendar which the airline hopes will raise €110,000 for the UK charity “KIDS” which provides support to disabled children all over the UK.
Ryanair’s CEO Michael O’Leary has already bought the first 100 copies of the 2010 calendar and sent one to anti-fun Labour MEP Mary Honeyball who last year wrongly accused Ryanair of “forcing” cabin crew to take part in the calendar. Ryanair’s cabin crew volunteer to take part and this year over 800 of the airline’s 4,000 cabin crew applied for this great charity event.
The proceeds of the 2010 calendar will bring the total raised by Ryanair’s sexy cabin crew to almost €300,000 since the first calendar was published in 2008. The 2010 edition, which was shot at Ryanair’s Alicante base in September, will raise €110,000 through the sale of 11,000 calendars onboard Ryanair flights and from www.ryanair.com for just €10.
Ryanair’s people chose to donate all the 2010 proceeds to the UK based “KIDS” charity, which provides support to disabled children and their families throughout the UK.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“Ryanair’s cabin crew stunners once again strip off for charity and this year they’re doing it for the ‘KIDS’ charity. This year’s calendar is the hottest yet and we hope to raise €110,000 to help ‘KIDS’ assist even more disabled children and their families in the UK. Every year the calendar sells like hot cakes and at just €10 the 2010 edition won’t be available for long. Those who want to help ‘KIDS’ and bring a smile to someone’s face all year long should buy the calendar onboard Ryanair flights or from the Ryanair website today.
“Ryanair is delighted to partner with the ‘KIDS’ charity and looks forward to donating a cheque for €110,000, when all 11,000 calendars are sold, on behalf of all Ryanair’s cabin crew who have raised almost €300,000 for charity over the past three years.”
KIDS Chief Executive, Kevin Williams said:
“We are delighted that Ryanair has this year chosen to support the much valued, practical support that KIDS provides for disabled children and their families across the UK. Our thanks go to all the Cabin Crew who took part – it’s great when a bit of fun can serve such a serious purpose. Our unique Direct Short Breaks service provides opportunities for disabled children and their carers which would otherwise simply not be possible.”
