University of Birmingham Netball Team Bare All for Charity Calendar

1

A university sports team has posed naked in the freezing cold with only netballs to cover their modesty. But why?

Sixteen brave sportswomen from the University of Birmingham, England, UK, removed their clothes to pose naked — for a good cause. The students are raising money for a breast cancer awareness charity organization and their own netball club.

One of the organisers Liv Stables, 21, commented on the process of converting the unusual idea into reality: “Everyone was quite nervous to begin with, but when we did our first shoot I was surprised by how quickly everyone got their dressing gowns off.”

“It was absolutely freezing, which wasn’t ideal. We did it early in the morning to try and avoid people seeing us, but there were a few people around. It was great because everyone got really into it. It was really fun to do it with such a great group of girls.”

“We wanted to raise awareness about women checking their breasts by supporting CoppaFeel! It’s a great merger because it’s such an awful illness that affects so many women.”

And although the calendar leaves little to the imagination the girls have managed to make it natural and tasteful.

The charity encourages women under 30 to regularly check their breasts to help the early detection of breast cancer.
