Naomi Davison with some of the calendars

Ladies from a cheeky Lincoln sports team have bared almost all for a charity calendar – and it's now on sale.
The calendar has been done in a tongue-in-cheek nod to the film Calendar Girls by the Next Round team in the Lincoln Ladies Rounders League.
Their saucy pictorial sees the girls stripped off, with carefully posed props, shirts and camera angles to cover their modesty.
Each picture features a variety of activities from the game of rounders, such as batting, fielding and bowling.
They stripped off for the nearly-nude pictures to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Research after team captain Naomi Davison's mum was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
Miss Davison (24), a city council worker, said she has been a bit embarrassed about people seeing quite so much of her.
"Since the calendars came out there have been a lot of family and friends calling up with compliments, which is quite nice, but it was a bit nerve-wracking," said Miss Davison, from the uphill area of the city.
"But I decided to brave it and it really has been worth it. My mum is over the moon with the whole thing. She's having chemo at the moment and has been really positive."
The calendar went on sale on Saturday last week and so far the girls' talents on the pitch have attracted more that 550 buyers.
The calendars are available to buy online at www.lincsrounderscalender.webs.com .
