Women’s rugby team strips off for charity (PICS)

UK: A women’s rugby team has stripped off for a naked charity calendar – and don’t they look scrum-ptious. The University of Liverpool Women’s Rugby League team bared all for the second year in a row to raise money for a good cause.

This year the calendar supports Joining Jack, a charity which raises awareness and money to fight DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy). It was set up by the family of Jack Johnson, six, from Wigan, who was diagnosed with DMD – a progressive muscle-wasting condition for which there is currently no cure.

Team member Olivia Davison told the Liverpool Echo: “We are proud to be raising money for such a good cause.

“Half the profits from the calendar are going towards Joining Jack to help fund research into a cure for DMD.

“The rest of the money raised will go towards funding our club. Women’s Rugby League is not currently widely played at university level and we lack funding to afford equipment and transport to away matches.

“We are also trying to encourage other universities to offer the sport to women and this money will help us do this.” The calendars are being sold for £10 by the team, at the University of Liverpool’s sports centre and via uolwrlnakedcalendar.moonfruit.com

Olivia added: “We would also like to thank Seb Castilho, who donated his time and skill to photograph the calendar.”
