An aquathon raised £1,800 in memory of a woman who spent 12 years battling a brain tumour.

The event was organised by international aqua instructor Sarah Windibank, in honour of her friend Karen Stokoe, who died earlier this year.

She said: “It went incredibly well.

“I think we had about 70 people turn up and we ran half hour sessions on things like Aqua Zumba and Aqua Combat.

“We raised about £1,800 which will be split be- tween the Brain Tumour Charity and the children’s ward at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.”
