Talented students from Leeds University Union’s Vertical Fitness club finally clocked off from an epic ‘Pole-a-thon’ at 7am this morning – 24 hours after the pole dance marathon began.

The group, which aims to fight the stigma and prejudice surrounding pole dancing and highlight the power, skill and talent needed for the workout, completed the challenge – where a Vertical Fitness members had to be dancing at all times – to raise money for Leeds-based charity Basis Yorkshire.
