University of Bristol students give back by getting naked


By Louise Cripps, Investigations Editor

Students at the University of Bristol have stripped down for Bristol’s Raising and Giving society’s 2019 naked calendar.

Twelve of Bristol’s largest clubs and societies have gotten naked for this year’s charity calendar. Bristol sportsmen and women including Athletics, Badminton and Fencing have shown off their athletic bodies. Whilst our scientists have dropped their lab-coats, all in the name of charity.

This year’s calendar includes such scenic locations as the Victoria Rooms, Wills Memorial library and the Downs. Even the dry slopes of Gloucester are feature.

Reflecting on her experience, one member of Snowsports described it as ‘liberating’, but argued that it ‘crossed boundaries of friendship that I didn’t think were there’.

This ideal Christmas present is all in the name of Charity. With calendar proceeds supporting Bristol Nightline, Woman Kind and the CATS (Cancer Awareness in Teenagers and young people Society) campaign.

Events Officer Paige Taylor said, ‘We reached out to societies who wanted to be involved with the calendar and selected our favourite 12 ideas. We'd love to sell out our run of calendar's now and ideally sell 300 in total.’
