THOUSANDS of pounds have been raised during a 24-hour charity bounce at Clevedon School.

More than 250 students and staff bounced on an inflatable castle for 24 hours to raise more than £2,000 for Amnesty International.

At the end of the day-shift, many students performed a magic, dance ad singing show for an hour-long Jump Around Music Concert.

Around 80 students also took part in the night-shift where the school hall was awash with pop-up tents and sleeping bags as they prepared to bounce through the night.
