A Message from SHU Rugby


Have you thought about doing a charity calendar to raise funds for your club?

It's FREE TO DO and an easy way to make hundreds of pounds for your club.

All you need is a few willing players and we'll do the rest!

SHU Rugby has been producing nude fundraising calendars since 2001 and has become a huge international success.

Paul Manning has been the Commercial Manager of SHU Rugby since 2005 when he re-launched the SHU Rugby calendar project and made it a global cult hit. 

In 2007 SHU Rugby started producing the accompanying 'Making of' films which show the behind the scenes footage of the calendar photo shoots.  These films have significantly increased the profits of the project and since then SHU Rugby has raised over £65,000 for the club and the many charities that it supports.

Paul was asked to take over the Rugby Helps Our Heroes project in 2014.

If you would like to raise money for your club please get in touch.

Remember it wont cost you anything and your club gets all of the profits

We would help you arrange photo shoots and provide the photographer.

We also design the calendar and can get it printed for you.

We will organise the filming and editing of the behind the scenes film, trailer clips and Crowdfunder appeal

and we will sell the calendar and films through our online store, giving you instant advertising to a huge database of existing customers.

Best of all... you get 100% of the profits.  

We don't charge a fee for the services, or take any percentage of sales.

You get all your profits transferred to your account. 

Hang on a minute...  WHY WOULD WE DO ALL THIS FOR FREE?

The quick, and honest, answer is:  because it's good for us!

If you produce a nude calendar and film then you are going to promote it.

You can advertise it on your club website and Facebook pages... 

... also on your Pitchero page and Instagram and Twitter and Snapchat and all the rest of the social media platforms that your club and the players may have.

It's in your interest to advertise it so you sell more copies and therefore make more money for your club.

And since you will be pointing people towards our online store to buy the products, we get more traffic on our shop site and a few more additional sales of our own products whilst people are at the store.

(We have done this collaborative working in the past and found that it worked really well.  A large number of customers will buy not just your club calendar and film, but also our calendar and film too.)

So it's a win-win situation.  Your club gets a calendar project, a guaranteed customer database, and all it's profits, and we get additional traffic and sales as we are selling your products alongside our own.

Good idea eh!?
