2012 sees the return of the well-established AU: Stripped calendar. Once again, twelve teams from across the AU bared (almost) all for charity. The teams included the Women and Men’s Rugby, Netball, Ladies Golf, Women’s Lacrosse, Women and Men’s Football, Waterpolo, Cycling, Snowsports, Trampolining and the Polo Club, who posed in the nude at various locations across Fife, braving the bitter Scottish weather to show exactly what our Saints Sport athletes are made of.
Having proudly raised £1000 for Disability Sport Fife last year, and sponsoring two local athletes at the 2011 Special Olympic Games in Athens, the AU: Stripped team chose to support the same charity once more. This year, the funds raised will go towards eight-year-old Callum Sloane from Dunfermline, who one day hopes to take part in wheelchair track-racing for Great Britain at the Paralympics. His family have applied for tickets for the Paralympic Games in London in 2012 to see the world's leading wheelchair racers in real life. With the help of this calendar, the AU: Stripped team are hoping to help him on the way to realising his dream.
The AU:Stripped Launch Party will take place at the Lizard Lounge this Wednesday 30th November. Entry is £3 at the door. Should you wish to pre-order a calendar, email firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd December. Calendars are only £8 each.
The team would like to give a huge thanks to their photographers, Nina Zietman and Yasmin Andrews, as well as the twelve teams for their courage and great spirit.
