A mother and daughter team set themselves challenges as part of the diamond anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
Beth and Jemima Letts, of March, rose to the occasion to do something different and raise money to help keep the scheme running.
As gold award recipients the pair earned sponsorship for their efforts.
Beth did a musical challenge of learning a new instrument in 60 days and then performing a concert on it.
Jemima walked the 115 mile North Wales pilgrim path

The Diamond Challenge is not just for new recipients of the award - anybody who has ever received one can get involved in the diamond challenge which is when Beth realised she could also take part.
She persuaded her fellow Fenland Music Centre conductor, Ceri Griffin, that they should learn a new instrument in 60 days and work towards performing a duet.
They chose the cello and finished their challenge in July when they played a duet version of All Through the Night at the FMC Rotary concert in St Peter’s.
Beth has decided to extend the challenge and perform a solo piece on the cello at the entertainment evening on Saturday October 8.
