Ulster Rugby has launched a 2014 calendar with all proceeds going to the Province’s charity partner for this season, Cancer Research UK.

The calendar, shot by Khara Pringle, is available online via Ticketmaster, over the counter at the Ulster Rugby Ticket Office, over the telephone on 028 9049 3222 and at the Ulster Rugby shop at Ravenhill. It is priced at £10 in store and £14 online (including postage and packaging) with all proceeds going to the charity.

The calendar features photographs of the senior Ulster squad such as Ruan Pienaar, Joahnn Muller, Roger Wilson and Paul Marshall.

Ulster Rugby fans have already raised more than £11,000 for Cancer Research UK so far this season as part of their Kick Cancer into Touch campaign.

Kevin Harper, Senior Local Fundraising Manager said:

“Everyone at Cancer Research UK, Northern Ireland is absolutely buzzing about the calendar that Ulster Rugby has created for us. So far, the staff and players have had an online auction, a premium raffle and a match day collection…and now this! The calendar looks great and what is even better is that all the proceeds will be used to find new ways to treat cancer here in Northern Ireland. I bought one for my wife and I would encourage all Ulster fans to do the same. Let’s Kick Cancer into Touch!”

Mr November, Michael Allen is delighted to be involved with such a good cause:

“It’s great to see the calendar coming out this week. I really enjoyed being a part of it. Getting my hair done covered in fake mud and surrounded by smoke was a bit of a strange experience but it was good fun. I think it looks great and the fact that all proceeds are going to Cancer Research UK is fantastic.”


Cancer Research UK – (
Every day, 23 people are diagnosed with cancer in Northern Ireland – that’s around 8,200 each year. Thanks to research, more people are beating the disease than ever before and Cancer Research UK is at the heart of this progress. Belfast is home to one of Cancer Research UK’s Centres, and the city is recognised worldwide for ground-breaking cancer research. The Centre brings together scientists, doctors and nurses who are building on existing strengths in research, turning discoveries in the lab into new, more effective ways to detect, monitor and treat people with cancer.

Ulster Rugby has teamed up with Cancer Research UK to work together throughout the 2013/14 season to help ‘Kick Cancer into Touch’. Each year, Ulster Rugby raises money for a designated charity or voluntary organisation. Through the partnership with Cancer Research UK, Ulster Rugby will promote and support the lifesaving work that the charity does in Northern Ireland.
