Vet students strip off for a good cause


Final-year students at the Royal Veterinary College have stripped naked for a 2019 calendar in support of charity.


All the proceeds from calendar sales – priced at £10 each – will be donated to Vetlife, a charity providing  emotional, financial and mental health support to the veterinary community.


Photos on the calendar show the wannabe vets posing some of the animals they’re going to be taking care of in future.


The theme for the 2019 calendar is 'Vets in Action' and final-year student Ben Alexander Smith, who took the photos, said: “I wanted to take photos that would reflect a stripped back representation of the various careers vets in practice have. I’m really happy with the artistic look of the calendar and they are flying off the shelves."
