Cardiff University Student Amy Morfoot Strips For Naked Charity Calendar (PICTURES)

A Cardiff student and her friends have stripped off in a naked calendar to raise money for a brain tumour charity after her mother was diagnosed with the disease.

Amy Morfoot, who attends Cardiff University, hopes to raise £5,500 for The Brain Tumour Charity, as well as increasing awareness of the effects of the often fatal disease.

The 21-year-old has recruited six "very understanding" friends to appear in the buff alongside her in the Charity Calendar 2013, which was shot in two locations in the Welsh capital city.

Earlier this year her mother Sarah was diagnosed with a grade three brain tumour, which Amy says was "devastating" for her family.

"Since her diagnosis I have developed an understanding of the amazing work charities do to fight and raise awareness of the horrendous disease," the business student explains.

"People have been incredibly supportive of the calendar loaning their skills, resources and time which has meant that every single penny raised will go directly to the Brain Tumour Charity."

The nude students were photographed in the university's gym and on the grounds of the university's rugby pitch, where apparently the groundsmen took "a keen interest".

"The shoot took a whole day where we had to fight the harsh Welsh elements giving us a gorgeous backdrop," Amy adds.

The calendar is available to buy from November 12, and is available at Cardiff estate agents Pinnacle Lettings, which can be found on Fanny Street in Cathays.
