Queen's University students bare all to raise cash for charity

By Amanda Poole

Students from Queen’s University Belfast have dared to bare for a cheeky new fundraising calendar.

Some 70 students from 21 of the Queen’s Students’ Union clubs and societies took part in the calendar, called SU Stripped, to raise funds for the PIPS suicide prevention charity.

The risqué calendar features the photographic work of three undergraduates.

While naked calendars have been previously produced by other universities, such as Cambridge, the SU Stripped calendar is different in that it contains two separate academic year layouts.

On one side the layout features pictures of the male volunteer models, and the reverse contains the pictures of their female counterparts.

Photographs were taken at venues including the Ulster Museum, well-known student haunt the Botanic Inn, and Shane’s Castle, as well as various locations on the Queen’s campus.

Each picture highlights a theme based on the club or society of the participating student models.

All proceeds go directly to PIPS after printing costs were met by Value Cabs, See Potential, Mindshare, the Odyssey Trust and Cassidy’s filling station.

The calendar is available at various locations on the Queen’s campus and on under SU Stripped Charity and costs £5.
