Superheroes turned into super swimmers to raise hundreds of pounds for Rwandan students.

Three pupils from Hockerill Anglo-European College dressed as Batman, Superman and Spiderman in a bid to raise money for students at the college's partner school in Rwanda.

The 14-year-old pupils James Donovan, Ashley Rose and Paul Stringer raised hundreds of pounds for their partner school's students after they swam a staggering 105 lengths in just one hour at Grange Paddock swimming pool while wearing full fancy dress costume.

The money raised will make a great different to the Rwandan school as £90 pays for a student's full board and education for a whole year.
