The winner of the Trinity Mirror Your Champions Young Person of the Year has also been doing his bit for Children in Need this year.

Harvey Hughes-Sharps, of Guilden Sutton, was crowned champion at the Crowne Plaza last Friday evening, wearing his best big and tucker, after spending the day dressed in pyjamas to raise funds for the BBC charity.

The six-year-old won his award for all the fundraising he has done for the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, that looked after his mum Rachel who sadly lost her battle with cancer in December 2013.

A keen fundraiser, Harvey has also raised cash for other charities but proudly collected £153.30 for Children in Need.

Chester Students' Union also held a 'Row-athon' in their CH1 bar from 9am-6pm on Friday where sports societies rowed as a team on six machines for 30 minutes each before another team took over for their 30 minute slot.

The teams included lacrosse, CH1 bar staff, men's rugby union, waterloo, swimming, kung fu, women's rugby union, student union staff, pole fitness, netball and rowing.
