Agbai Uchechi's Blog: Women Rugby Players Strips Off For Naked …

To support a Breast Cancer Awareness Charity the University of Liverpool women’s rugby team strips off for naked calendar. And as expected the calendar sells out pretty quickly. The calenders were sold to support Coppafeel, a charity which teaches women how to check their breasts regularly to detect cancer in the early stage.

The students kitted off for the third year in a row to raise money for a good cause. The Liverpool ladies team sold 375 copies of the calendar at 10 each and estimate that profits will be more than 2,000 after expenses are taken out. In combination with last years s calendar, which was for Joining Jack, a charity which aims to raise awareness and money to fight DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy), they will have raised more than 4,000, reports the Liverpool Echo .

Eve Watton, 19, a second year English and Spanish student and the captain of the team said: “The calendar really helped the team last year with away matches and equipment as women s rugby league is really under funded. “We couldn’t survive without it.

All the girls are so thrilled to have sold out of our calendar for the second year in a row.” “Nobody expected how much publicity it would gain and the support we have received has been really lovely. “We are so thrilled to have raised such a large amount of money for a fantastic charity. “As a team we would like to thank everyone who has bought a calendar and supported us and Coppafeel.” See more photos below…
