    Sheffield University Equestrian Club

    “Our university makes a sports club charity naked calendar so, this year, we decided to make our very own for the equestrian club! Of course, it is not the easiest thing to coordinate and organise, but thanks to the yard where some of our members keep their horses (Cloughfields Equestrian Centre), one of the yards that we train at (Sheffield Equestrian Centre) and Vale of York Polo Club all being on board, we were able to shoot photos in a variety of locations. We had so much fun shooting for the calendar, it was something new to all of us. All of the horses were absolute superstars, although I think the polo ponies that we used did wonder what was happening when they had finished a polo session and suddenly had lots of naked riders posing around them!” — Yarrow Chia-Bendle, SUEC president

It started as a joke, but in fact everyone really got into the spirit of the project and gained lots of confidence. In fact, some people seemed happier to have their clothes off than on!” — Christine Fletcher

    Towcester Veterinary Centre

    Partners Andrew Hayes and Mike Sheldon of Towcester Vets fund raising for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a naked calendar for 2018.

    “Following the success of our equine team baring all to raise money for the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance back in 2016, the team decided it was time to strip off again. However, the equine vets were not the only team that wanted to get involved…  As long-term supporters of the WN Air Ambulance and DLR Air Ambulance, we have created another calendar with the help of James Rudd Photography and our small animal, farm, nurse and equine teams. Inside you will find monthly photos of them completing day-to-day tasks completely in the buff, all in the name of charity.”
