WINCHESTER University students raised more than £1,300 for Children in Need with a 48-hour radio show.

Sam Ashton and Owen Williams kicked off their show at 3pm on Wednesday, November 13, staying on the air until 3pm on Friday (Nov 16).

The pair only rested for an hour each during the broadcast and had a team of fundraisers running around campus collecting donations, with £1,344 raised so far.

Among the pair's guests on the show were university deputy vice chancellor Tommy Geddes, former Paralympic swimmer Rob Marsden and American sleep specialist Dr Stephanie Silberman.

Radio station manager Thomas Sampson said: “It really shows the true spirit of university's staff and students, when we all come together we can achieve great things, and the money raised from this broadcast really proves that."
