Paragon charity calendar

Agents’ jazzy support for Ronald McDonald House

Manchester's Office Agents' Society donned dicky bows and braces to team up with Paragon's feather boa and pearl-clad Manchester and Nottingham female staff, for a 1920s-inspired calendar to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The aptly entitled D&B And All That Jazz photo shoot, was funded by Paragon Interiors Group in aid of its chosen charity for 2012.

Gathering at Paragon's Belvedere offices were Edwards & Co's Andrew Timms, GVA's Richard Lace, Lambert Smith Hampton's Adam Jackson, Cushman & Wakefield's Jonathan Baucher, P3's Phil Meakin and Toby Yield and JLL's Andrew Gardiner and Tom McWilliams recreating scenes from Chicago.

Ian Matthews, swapping his new title of head of design, for fashion and art director for the shoot, also had JLL's Greg Ball balancing atop of the Paragon sculpture, Matthews & Goodman's David Laws and Rob Peill up a stepladder, whilst CBRE's Nick Nelson and WHR's Anthony Howcroft, Ollie Rowe and Josh Levy sporting their Movember taches, posed al fresco with the Paragon mini

The money raised will go towards helping provide free 'home away from home' accommodation at hospitals across the UK, enabling families to stay close to their child and maintain a degree of normal family life. A new house next to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital is on-track to open in spring 2012.

The calendar is due to be unveiled at the OAS Christmas Lunch on 8 December and will be on sale throughout Christmas and early next year. The calendar will cost £10 with all proceeds going to RMHC.

  • The calendar can be bought from the Paragon office through Alex Rhodes, 0161 235 0800.
