Wowzat! CRICKET LEGEND ALLAN LAMB'S GIRL BARES ALL FOR CHARITY CALENDAR.

Byline: BY ALLISON MARTIN

AS an attacking batsman of the highest calibre her dad was the scourge of bowlers worldwide.

Now the daughter of England cricket legend Allan Lamb is hitting people for six in a cheeky charity calendar.

Katie-Ann Lamb, 21, and her lovely maidens - all student pals at Newcastle University - are pushing back the boundaries by baring all to raise funds for breast cancer after friends and relatives were hit by the disease.

Katie-Ann was moved when Jane McGrath, wife of Australian cricketer Glenn, died this year, aged 42, after battling bone cancer, and another pal was also diagnosed with the disease.

The marketing and management student, who had been the Mc-Graths' nanny during a gap year in Australia in 2007, said: "It must be horrific to lose a mother at such a young age."

When her best friend Kathryn Fielding's grandmother was diagnosed with the disease the pair pressed ahead with the calendar.

Katie-Ann said: "We were all nervous about going completely nude. But it's brought us closer and we're so glad we've done it.

We just hope the money raised will help."
