Cambridge University students bravely strip off for daring charity calendar

Sportsmen and women at Cambridge University have striped naked for a raunchy new photoshoot to raise money for charity.

The university’s esteemed rowers, swimmers, dancers and netball players, have bared all in various locations across the city for Cambridge Blues calendar.

Daring participants used a whole host of props – including footballs, boots and skis – to strategically hide their privates from prying eyes.

Undergraduate Emma Teal said her fellow nudists had fun while posing for the cheeky fundraiser.

She said: "We all really enjoyed making the calendar, although it did involve a lot of early mornings as we had to go to the locations when there weren’t too many people about.

Emma continued: “I’ve been involved in quite a lot of charity projects over the years, from volunteering my time, to completing physical challenges to fund raise.

"So when I came to university I knew I wanted to join a charitable society, and creating a naked calendar with Cambridge Raising and Giving (RAG) society seemed like the most fun way to raise lots of money for great causes.”

The calendar will go on sale from October 10 and will cost £10.

Last year’s edition, which was the first time the calendar was published, raised over £10,000 for charitable causes.

Funds raised this time around will go to a host of charities; including Beat Eating Disorders, Mary’s Meals Papyrus and the Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre.

Students at the renowned institution are no stranger to nakedness.

Each year Cambridge runs a "Best Bum" competition which sees dozens of entries from fearless scholars.

Last year’s winner, a law undergraduate named only as ‘Vita’, aid she called it a victory for "body acceptance" and said she was more proud of her victory than she was of winning her college place.

She said: "It says a lot about how far the world has come in body acceptance.

"I have worked hard to accept my body. I wanted to prove that to myself by doing something I wouldn’t usually do.

"I didn’t even expect the photo would be in the Top 10 – let alone be the winner.

"I’ve never been so proud of something like that. I’m probably more proud of that than getting into Cambridge."
