ON THIS day ten years ago The Argus went to see a man training to swim with sharks to raise money for charity. We caught up with drag queens putting on a Sound Of Music show and saw firefighters attempt to break a world record

Many of Brighton’s drag queens and cabaret artists performed a one-off Sound Of Music special

The Sound Of Music raised funds for the Brighton Aids Memorial

The cast are seen here dressed as the Von Trapp family

Then Stephen Winn, 38, from Angmering, got close to sharks, turtles and tropical fish in the hopes of raising £500 for Leukaemia Research

Stephen prepared for the challenge at Brighton’s Sealife Centre
