A Lancaster woman has been donning outfits from countries around the world to put a smile on people's faces - and has now turned her fun into a fundraising calendar.

Rohina Caterina decided to entertain her Facebook friends and herself during the first national lockdown between March and July.

And so she set off on weekly adventures around the world - while staying in her house - to bring a smile to people's faces during the pandemic.

And now, with the help of the Print unit at the University of Cumbria, Rohina has produced a calendar which she will sell for £5 to raise money for Fylde Coast Women's Aid.

Rohina, who is a social worker in Blackpool, said: "During the first lockdown I would dress up and visit different countries from my home!

"I would post a pic of my adventure every week on Facebook and people liked being entertained.

"It was was lovely to bring joy to people during a bit of an awful time, plus I loved it and now people want to buy my calendar!"
