Cheltenham Town raise money for charity

The Cheltenham Town squad have taken inspiration from this summer's Olympics to raise money for charity. The footballers took time away from preparing for Saturday's match with Southend to try their hand at different sports.

As part of a 'Gold Challenge' they took part in Olympic sports to raise money for the National Star College, which provides education for people with physical disabilities, brain injuries and associated learning difficulties.
