The bare bottoms of a group of rugby players will help raise thousands of pounds for charity.

Fundraisers Tony Arabskyj, Katie Ellis and Lynsey Chandler drafted in players from Dewsbury Moor and Dewsbury Celtic for their Bare Behinds calendar – which will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Help for Heroes.

The players, AJ Boardman, Lewis Pattinson, Toby Richardson, George Croisdale from Dewsbury Moor and Celtic’s Pat Foulstone and Anthony Dunford, as well as model Lee Ryan, posed in a series of racey pictures for Heckmondwike photographer Dawn Robinson.

Toby, of Water Royd Lane, Mirfield, and Katie, of Sunny Bank Road, Mirfield, had already raised cash with a charity ladies night at Old Bank Club in September.

And Lynsey, of Hollindene Drive, has raised more than £6,000 for Macmillan by agreeing to take part in a trek of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania next year.

Toby said: “The fundraising so far has gone so well that we wanted to do something extra. There was a fantastic atmosphere at the photoshoot and the end result looks absolutely superb.”

Bare Behinds will be launched at Asda in Dewsbury on Saturday November 16, from 10.30am to 5pm, with a raffle, cupcakes and the stars of the calendar. It costs £7, with all proceeds split between the two charities.
