Warwick Rowers Calendar is Back

The Warwick rowing team is back with a new naked calendar, and are more committed than ever to promoting tolerance and equality.

Regularly stripping off to raise funds for good causes, the team have been crowd-funding, and donating profits to fight homophobia since 2009. The first calendar came out in 2009, and raised over £100,000.

Their calendars enable them to do their own outreach programme to young people called Sport Allies, a programme to reach out to young people challenged by homophobia or low self-esteem.

The club has since 2012 donated a portion of its profits, and this year will aim to raise funds for Sport Allies, which is “dedicated to challenging homophobia among young people”.
