The group of 40 are fundraising for Kicking Cancer for Charlie – a charity set up for Charlie Harris who has leukaemia.

The seven-year-old, from Hilsea, has been treated for the illness for the last three years but has another three years ahead of him.

His charity raises money for other sick kids and has raised more than £9,000.
