Farmers carry out their duties nake3d to raise money for charity
Young farmers have stripped off to take photos for a new calendar as a means to raise money for a mental health charity.
Models from the Lothian and Peeblesshire Young Farmers Club in Scotland were moved to act after seeing mental health issues impact their community.
They stripped down down posed with seed bags, tractors and saddles in an effort to raise funds for the RSABI.
It is a charity supporting those who make their livelihoods on the land, both financially, but also with mental health.
Club secretary Kirsty Barr, 22, said: “The chairman, William Brown, and I came up with the idea in January after watching a club in the neighbouring district do one.
“We thought it looked like good fun and a good opportunity to raise money.
“We struggled at first to get people to take part, however once we had a few models interested then more came along and got involved.
“Everyone was nervous at first but once we started it was great fun because the photographer made you feel so comfortable and you were generally doing it with friends.”
The calendar was shot at various farms across the Lothians from June to October, with volunteers between the ages of 20 and 27 taking part.
Of the funds raised, 80% will go to RSABI and the remainder will help run young farmer events.
Calendars cost £12 and can be bought online.
