Last month, Scuba Travel's team of Tony Backhurst, Caroline Worley and Sue Harrison took part in the UK’s toughest Ironman 70.3 challenge in Someset to complete the swim, cycle and run, securing a top 20 spot in the team category.

The trio's sponsorship and the auction of a luxury liveaboard holiday to the Maldives raised a total of £2,737 for Bite-Back.

Describing the event, director of Scuba Travel Tony Backhurst said: 'There’s no doubt this was a tough event but the team was strong and we all put in good performances to cross the line in an admirable time. Thank you to everyone who sponsored the team and helped raise money to fund Bite-Back’s exciting and effective conservation programmes.'

Surrey-based diver Chris Frost placed the highest bid for the Maldives holiday and he’ll be jetting off to enjoy some stunning diving from MV Orion, part of the Constellation Fleet.
