Mallorca’s Calendar Girls Celebrate Life After 50 and Raise Money for Cancer Support


Article by Fabafterfifty

With a little creativity and determination, midlife women are showing that that far from being invisible, they can apply their energies and make a real difference.

There seems to be a revolution at the moment from women over a certain age. The last of the Boomer generation is reaching 50+ and all over the world we are hearing their voices. Even on the tiny island of Mallorca situated in the Mediterranean ocean, ladies beginning their second life are determined to stand up and be counted.

Life Coach Kay Newton says “It all began just under 12 months ago when I asked Samantha Hemsley to photo our International Women’s event held at Mood Beach Club  in Mallorca she immediately volunteered. Sam caused an overnight sensation with the images she took.”

One of Sam’s passion is to help those for whatever reason have become less confident about their appearance, the opportunity to reclaim their glamour with the creation of beautiful stylish photos that capture their inner beauty and confidence.

Celebrating the Life after 50

Continues Kay “With a little persuasion from friends, Sam decided it was time to celebrate the lives of  women over 50 and use her photography skills to help raise money for a cause that she and many others greatly believe in. Cancer touches and devastates so many lives, not only those who suffer it, but those close to them. This is particularly poignant for Sam as she lost her mother to cancer at aged 58.”

Sadly, at this present time Mallorca does not have an amazing network of MacMillan Nurses, although the island has a small number of charities attempting to address this issue. With the economy struggling, so are the charities and Sam felt it was time to step up and offer support.

With the help of many local businesses, a team of volunteers who have dedicating their time,   ladies over 50 to model for the shoots, Sam’s work has the whole island talking. If you would like to know more about the project, help sponsor, or buy a calendar you can find out more info at:
