A group of young volunteers spent four hours between them bathing in a paddling pool of baked beans to raise cash for charity.
Two teams from the Ashford National Citizen Service (NCS) came together in a joint fundraising effort and took shifts in the blow up bath outside the British Volunteer Pub, in New Street, Ashford on Tuesday.
The sponsored bath is the first event in a week of fundraising efforts from both teams, with the first team raising money for the Young Farmers Club and the second team for Young Carers.
Despite the rain and cold weather, the teenagers raised more than £50, which will be divided between the two charities and added to cash raised over the week.
Poppy Gooch, 16, from the Young Carers fundraising team, said: “I think I probably had the majority of beans poured over me, mostly by my brother and I was in the bath for nearly three hours!
“Both teams are really passionate about the charities we are raising money for and the money we raise will really make a difference.
“We met people from the Young Carers a few weeks ago and it was great to talk to them about what they do.
“We are trying to raise enough money in a week to give them a bit of a break and a day out.”
