Scores of youngsters braved the pouring rain to walk 20 miles to raise money for charity.
More than 25 Newham Sixth Form College students trekked past all the stations on the circle line to support Raleigh International, a charity that brings together young people, to make a difference in some of the poorest communities in the world.
The group raising more than £1,000 from the sponsored charity walk.
Hanson Anthony Fernandes, advanced vocational business student, said: “When we first started the circle line walk at Liverpool Street, I had it in my mind that no matter what happens, I will complete the walk.
“As stations passed, it became more and more interesting - there was never a point where I felt bored.”
