The pupils from the uniformed services department handed over £2,479 to the RNLI after the gruelling competition held at the Wisbech campus.

The event, supported by the Army, RAF Reserves, Cambs Cops and members of the public, saw students climbing towers and carrying tyres.

Lee Mallott, programme manager, said: "We are delighted with the success of our students today and indeed throughout the year.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the members of the public, the Armed Forces and Cambridgeshire Constabulary for their unwavering support in everything that we do."

During the day, 43 students received certificates for passing their Duke of Edinburgh bronze awards, while five students attained their silver award.

Over the duration of the year, the department have held fundraising events such as charity car washes and beach cleans to raise the cash for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
