Pics: Female Rugby Team Strips Off In A Bid To Raise Funds For Club
A female rugby team from Hertfordshire has stripped off for a naked calendar in a bid to raise some funds for their club
Hitchin Ladies Rugby Club have stripped off and bared all in a saucy shoot to raise some much needed funds for their club with the added aim of promoting body confidence and female empowerment.
The ladies admitted it did get a bit awkward, especially at scrum time, but were more than happy to strip off in a bid to raise a bit of cash and promote body confidence among younger women, with the photographer on the day, adamant there was no photoshopping done to any of the images.
It’s meant to be an empowering, body confidence sort of thing,’ events manager and photographer Amy Haughton said.
There was no photoshopping involved and all images include curves, cellulite – the lot. All the ladies came away from the shoot feeling pretty confident.
“We’re certainly not supermodels, but we had fun and hopefully we can raise some money and the profile of women’s rugby.
Team member Claire Crompton discussed the awkwardness at scrum time, but admitted they’re all good friends at the end of the day and reckon it seemed like a great idea to raise a few quid for their club.
Everyone was a bit shy to begin with but by the end of it we were all just walking around naked,” team member Claire Crompton told the Comet.net.
“We all shower together at the weekend so it’s not too different to that I suppose.
It did get a bit awkward when we tried out a scrum though.
“We’re all really good friends and wanted to do something fun to help raise money so this seemed like a great idea.”
The calendar can be bought on the club’s website for just £10, Fair play ladies!
