DARING women took up a number of challenges on water at the weekend to raise money for charity.

They were given the opportunity to windsurf, sail and canoe in the Ladies Water Challenge at Alton Water.

The event was organised by Marie Curie Cancer Care and women paid an entry fee of £10 and then had to raise a minimum of £80 in sponsorship.

Qualified instructors were provided by Alton Water Sports Centre for the event on Saturday.

The charity provides high quality free nursing to terminally ill people in their homes.
