BUNDABERG surf lifesavers are putting an end to the awkwardness of feigning excitement at receiving a bad gift at Christmas with the arrival of the 2014 Jupiters Summer Surf Girl calendar hot off the press.

The calendar, which features shots of some of Nielson Park Beach's finest spots and the Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club's elite, is a major fundraising project of Surf Girl entrant, Emily Prain.

Emily is the club's 41st entrant in the Surf Girl program and hopes to raise $25,000 before May next year, with all money raised going into the club's $800,000 renovation.

"It's a family-friendly calendar with gorgeous photos ranging from our little nippers to our club's most dedicated competitors, with even a little flashback to the 1940s," Emily said.

"By buying one of these calendars, you are helping to support the oldest organisation to have protected Nielson Park Beach for the past 92 years."

The high-gloss calendars will be sold for $10 across Bundaberg, starting at the Multicultural Festival on Sunday.

From next week, they can be bought from the NewsMail office on Woondooma St, Cast's IGA stores, Crofton St Pharmacy and Bundaberg Broadcasters also on Crofton St.

A calendar launch will be held at Sugarland Shoppingtown on Saturday August 24.
