Students at Shuttleworth College took part in an assault course to help raise money for charity.

On March 6 teams of students from the Shuttleworth College and Bedford College sites took part in the challenge and our photographer June Essex was there to capture the moment.

The youngsters were raising cash for Equal Adventure.

The charity gives disabled people and ex-servicemen with opportunities to participate in outdoor adventure, by providing courses, specialised equipment and support.

The college also hoped the event would encourage people to get active and go into the outdoors.

Last year the college held the Hero Challenge, with more than 100 students taking part and over £960 raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The event was organised by students studying a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Outdoor Education at Shuttleworth College.
