good cause Chris Scrivener (front, second left) is seen with Town players (from left) Phil Senior, Mark Hudson and Andy Holdsworth and models (from left) Rachel Wainwright, Alex Leather, Cherie Van-Bellen, Marie Holt and Graham McWilliam HUDDERSFIELD Town players got their kit off at a town centre bar.

But it was all for a good cause.

Phil Senior, Andy Holdsworth and Mark Hudson were at Bar Restaurant 1535 on Queen Street South, modelling clothes from store E21 to help raise money for the Chris Scrivener Appeal.

Fifteen-year-old Chris, of Brighouse, suffers from Leber's optic atrophy, an eye condition which gradually causes blindness.

The money will contribute to the continued rental of a special box at the Galpharm Stadium, so Chris and other partially sighted soccer fans can follow Town's fortunes.

The event's organiser, Sally Willis, a final year marketing student at Huddersfield University, said before the event: "We have all put a lot of work into our course and are looking forward to having a successful fundraising event, as well as gaining marks towards our degree.

"Our team includes two overseas students and the president of the university football team.

"So we came up with this idea, as a way of engaging all our team in ways that we could all contribute to a successful event."
