Amberley's Fire Brigade raised more than $100,000 for youth mental health charity, 'I Am Hope', at the weekend.

A dozen of the brigade's volunteers swam for 24-hours, after barely catching their breath following the massive Waikari Valley fire earlier in the week.

Ces Pacey who heads the Amberley volunteer fire brigade, and Chris Reeves, who came up with the Swim for Hope idea spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
