Over the bank holiday weekend, BCS pupils Abbie and Tom completed an astounding fundraising challenge in support of local mental health charity Dorset Mind.
Having not seen their French grandparents since Christmas, they set themselves the challenge to row the equivalent from their home in Bournemouth to their grandparents residence in Caen, France - a distance of 200 km. To challenge themselves even more, they decided to do this within a staggering 24 hours and even enlisted the help from their parents Estelle and Russell Slatford.
The family as a whole managed to row 200 km within their 24 hour goal, and raised just over £1200 for Dorset Mind in the process!
