Clients and staff from the Bentley Day Resource Centre in Banstead, Surrey, enjoyed a millennium boat trip thanks to Axa Re and Axa Global Risks.

The centre, which caters for adults with severe learning difficulties, cruised down the Thames taking in the sites of the Millennium Dome and the London Eye as part of a day of global charitable events staged by the insurer.

The group from Banstead was entertained on board by accordionist Janet Beal, while Axa staff were on hand to make sure things were all shipshape and Bristol fashion.
