Team GB's para women stars have taken part in a social media challenge to help raise money for the NHS.

The challenge involves the athletes exchanging their casual clothes for their athletic kit and showing off their medals, before passing the baton on to their team members. 

So far, the fund set up by the 4x100m women's team, with help from other GB squads, has raised over £7,000. 

Hannah Cockroft, Stef Reid, Hollie Arnold, Samantha Kinghorn, Kare Adenegan, Maria Lyle, Ali Smith, Sophie Hahn, Sophie Kamlish, Kayleigh Haggo, Ellie Simpson, Polly Maton and Kadeena Cox all took part in the #don'trushchallenge.

They have nominated Team GB's para men, para coaches and the British swimming team to continue the challenge.
