WOMEN had a fun time messing around on the water when they took part in a charity event in support of those suffering with cancer.

The Ladies Water Challenge was held on Saturday at Alton Water near Ipswich and there was the chance for fundraisers to try their hand at canoeing, windsurfing and sailing.

The sailors - who were taking part in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care - enjoyed learning new skills under expert tuition in small groups.

Angela Bussey, a community fundraiser for Suffolk and Norfolk, said: “We had about 27 ladies who took part and they have had a fantastic day.”
