Workers from a disability charity have collectively walked 201.2 kilometres as part of a 2012 Olympic legacy initiative.
Staff at Diverse Abilities Plus, in Dorset, walked from Swanage to Hengistbury Head as part of the Gold Challenge, which asks people to complete distances of either 201.2km or 2,012km however they choose.
Each member of the team walked 26km, totalling just over 201.2km, in seven hours.
Chief executive Mark Powell was part of the eight-strong team. He said: "All of the money we raise will be going to Diverse Abilities Plus - a charity which we are all incredibly passionate about as it provides such vital support for hundreds of children and adults, and their families, in Dorset. Our target is to raise £1,000 by doing this challenge and we thank those that have sponsored us already."
Other members were retired chief executive officer Paul Barnard, Charlotte Curtis, head of business resources; Nick Bold, head of adult services; Mark Freer, finance manager, Helen Alexander, fundraising manager, Steph Vaughn, trainer, and graduate trainee Hugh Felstead.
