Kit off for charity

The Cayman Rugby Football Union has released its first ever men’s and women’s calendar.

The double-sided calendar, which features 12 months of exciting and racy photos of both the Cayman women’s national team and men from the local Alex Alexander Rugby competition, is out now just in time for Christmas with sales proceeds going to both the Cayman Rugby Football Union and The Cayman Islands Cancer Society.

Fans of local rugby will no doubt recognise many of the models in the calendar who preserved their dignity with well placed rugby balls and tackle pads all in the name of a good cause.

With the boys on one side and the girls on the other it is a perfect gift catch-all gift.

Model and press relations officer for the Cayman Rugby Union, Peter de Vere, said ‘This has been a labour of love for all involved. Many of the models were a little apprehensive about shedding clothes for the camera but our photographer was very good at putting us at ease and managing to get the very best poses.’ (No wonder de Vere went on a crash diet!)

Model and women’s captain Rowena Lawrence added: ‘We owe everything to Rebecca and the staff of Picture This who have put together a great product for us to sell and raise money for charity’.
