Four Jewson directors raised around £5,000 for a children’s charity by swimming in a tank containing sharks.

Operations director Neil Lawrence and regional directors Neil Osborne, Paul Edwards and Steve Warwick undertook the challenge for the company’s charity for the year – “When You Wish Upon a Star” – which grants wishes for sick children.

The tank at the Blue Planet Aquarium in Cheshire holds around 600 fish including 12 sharks of three different species.
