A sweaty group of hard-working Aussie men unafraid to roll up their neon sleeves or slop sauce down their midriff has posed for a new "tradie-style" charity calendar.
The "real" take on the iconic hunky Australian Firefighters Calendar comes from a group of tradies from Goulburn Valley Plaster Products in Shepparton, Victoria.
The inaugural 2021 calendar aims to boost mental health awareness among blue-collar workers and support the work of TIACS Foundation.
TIACS provides free frontline support for workers in need of a short chat or long-term care.
The Real Tradie Calendar shifts the spotlight onto a group of untapped models keen to lend a hand for a charitable cause, GV Plaster Products general manager Brad Hanson said in a statement on Monday.
One man is seen chowing down on a sausage roll as sauce dribbles down his shirt, another takes a beer-break in a wheelbarrow, fully clothed.
Plenty of blokes also take the chance to show off their not-so-toned abs.
"They understand the importance of raising awareness for mental health, so it was great to have the boys jump on board and have some fun in the spotlight," Mr Hanson said.
