They got naked to make your 2015
The Dance Society have bared all in a cheeky naked calender to raise some cash – not for charity, but for their very own club.
The society, which doesn’t get much funding, will use the profits to support trips to competitions.
The calendar is the first they’ve done, and they’ve done it all themselves.
Rio Stieson, who’s helping to promote the calendar, told The Tab: “We don’t get much funding and we’re working towards taking the whole society to the competitions.
“That means funding over 100 members to go to Edinburgh, Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield.”
She added: “However we are raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation through other work such as our dance show and bake sales.
“This is the first calendar we have done.
“We are only selling them for £5 so we would be looking to raise about £170 which will pay for the entrance fees for one of the competitions.”
Getting it out is nerve wrecking for some but Rio continued: “All the members are a really close knit team, so we couldn’t have felt more at ease shooting the calender.
“It was a little nervy at times, especially for our freshers.
“When we did the photos in the swimming pool we had all the swimming team watching so that added pressure.
“But the amount of positivity we have had surrounding the calendar is overwhelming.
“We’re already planning next year’s and we’re hoping it will look a little more professional.
“We did all the photos ourselves this year with no help, but if it becomes an annual thing who knows what may happen.”
The calendars will be on sale at the HUDS Show on Saturday 13 December or order from firstname.lastname@example.org for £5 while stocks last.
