Girls from Mandeville School have been raising money for Comic Relief - in an enjoyable and energetic way.
A group of 53 female students took part in a 24-hour bounceathon for Comic Relief last Friday and Saturday.
The students ranged from year seven to year ten and between them bounced from 9am on Friday to 9am the following day.
The unusual challenge was the brainchild of the school’s head of PE Ashley Crowther who said: “They got put into groups and did 30 minute stints before swapping.
“There were six groups across two trampolines.”
Some pupils took the opportunity to have a nap between stints as the library was turned into a temporary sleeping area.
It is Mr Crowther’s first year at Mandeville School, although he has organised a bounceathon before.
He said: “During the day we did challenges like swivel hips and seat drops but as the challenge went on and people got more tired we reverted to smaller jumps.
“All the girls were asked to raise £50 but several did more - one of them raised £185.
“The deadline for money is next Wednesday (29th) and we hope to raise about £2,000.”
It is estimated that during the course of the challenge there were around 155,520 bounces.
