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.
Intercounty Estate Agents were the main sponsors having donated £100 to the pupils to swim as many lengths as they could in the one hour allowed.
The event organisers and the teenagers wish to thank their sponsors, the swimming pool and family and friends for all their support.
