Brave volunteers put the bare into polar in a sponsored streak to raise funds for the endangered animals last Friday 19th. The annual Bare All for Polar Bears took place at the award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park, home to four of the majestic animals at the end of the day a after the day visitors had gone home.

Entrants, who were encouraged to raise as much sponsorship as possible for daring to bare, left their clothes in a secure changing area and received a commemorative medal at the end of the run.
