A group of 43 Brockenhurst College leisure course students raised over £20,000 for Dementia UK recently with a 24-hour swimathon.

The team of Upholstery learners, who call themselves the Strippers and Stretchers, performed the day/night endurance event at a private pool in Wooton.

Friends and family turned out to support the fundraising drive, which also included a raffle and live music.

Organiser and Upholstery teacher, Susan Newman, from Highcliffe, said the group had decided to support Dementia UK because it is an illness that affects everybody at some level.
