POOLSIDE staff and swimmers at Andover Leisure Centre splashed their way through aquabeat sessions all dressed in pink - to mark their support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Nearly £300 was raised for the charity during two sessions held on a Monday morning and Tuesday night as instructors pledged their wages and customers and members gave donations to support the 'In the Pink' month.

Luci Morrish, aquabeat instructor, said: "It was a very colourful experience."

Fellow instructor Linda Flynn, who dressed in a pink wig and pink lipstick for the occasion, added: "What a great way to have fun and raise money for charity."

The leisure centre's next fundraising event is a 12-hour rowing challenge against Middle Wallop's army air corp at the Chantry Centre, Andover on November 14.

Anyone able to row for the centre or help with the event should contact Julie Collings or Luci Morrish on 01264 347108.
