A RIBBLE Valley girl has dared to bare all – well, almost all – while horsing around for a great cause.
Laura Fielding, a former pupil at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School, is now studying at Leeds University, where she is captain of the Equestrian Society.
Inspired by a local charity, she and seven fellow society members have stripped off for a naughty-but-nice equestrian-themed 2012 calendar – and the finished article is selling like shares in a thoroughbred!
The photos, artwork and production values of the “Leeds University Union Equestrian Society Naked Calendar 2012” are of professional quality, and all profits go to the Otley and District Riding for the Disabled Association.
“Having been up to help at one of the RDA centres we have seen first-hand the great work they do and are incredibly enthusiastic about helping this great cause,” said Laura.
“This is a purely volunteer-run charity dedicated to offering mentally and physically disabled children and adults riding experiences.”
So inspired were Laura and her university friends they decided to do their bit to help, and so was born the idea for their “naked” calendar.
In fact, while certainly tantalising, the shots are also very tasteful, with a variety of props and sexy undies sparing the girls’ blushes.
Still, they give Lady Godiva a good run for her money!
And, not surprisingly the calendar is earning the girls an army of fans, quite literally!
“We are particularly pleased to announce we were contacted by Company A of the 5th Battalion, The Rifles, who have just started their six-month tour of Afghanistan,” said Laura.
“They had heard about our calendars through a magazine and have asked us to be their mascots while they are away.
“We are extremely proud and honoured to have been asked and will be sending them signed calendars, letters and other mail to help boost morale and to show our support for the duration of their time away.”
