Eighteen-year-old Holly Newton successfully tried scuba diving on Saturday as part of a quest to try 52 sports in 52 weeks.

Holly, of Greetham, together with her siblings, has taken on the challenge to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. The scuba dive was organised by British Sub-Aqua Club in Derby as part of the This Girl Can campaign to get more women involved in sport. Holly described the experience as “frightening but interesting”.
