The event was called Strictly Come Scuba by organisers.
Away from Comic Relief fundraising, a Lincoln woman will cycle from her home city to Boston as she aims to raise money for Brain Tumour Charity.
Jane Flintham will tackle the 35-mile-trek to Boston Marina on June 9.
She plans to take part in the event with up to 30 friends.
Mrs Flintham said: "I have been inspired after hearing some stories of local children who have suffered from brain tumours.
"Due to that there was no other choice of charity for me and we all hope to raise a lot of money."
To sponsor Mrs Flintham, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pupils at The Priory Academy LSST aim to raise £2,500 ahead of a school trip to Indonesia.
Students have the chance to visit the country to take part in a new environmental study into new species and the effects of deforestation.
They now hope to raise money by doing group events such as car boots, fetes and Easter egg sales.
If you would like to help the students raise money, call 01522 889 977.
A roller disco will take place at RAF Digby in aid of the Fraja Ellie Appeal.
Fraja Ellie, 4, who lives at RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire, is currently undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma – a rare and aggressive childhood cancer of the nerve tissue along the spinal cord.
Now, RAF members need to raise £500,000 so Fraja can receive the treatment she requires in America.
Sergeant Danny Graham said: "Fraja has been receiving intense chemotherapy for her treatment and is now in cycle four.
"Due to the poor prognosis and relapse, the specialist treatment she requires is not available in the UK.
"The roller disco is going to be a very worthwhile event."
The event will take place at RAF Digby on Thursday, April 4, starting at 6pm.
For further details, email Mr Graham on email@example.com
