Swim and raise cash for sick youngsters

A CHILDREN’S charity is inviting people to take part in an upcoming swimming event to raise money for its services.

Charity for Kids, which helps sick youngsters in 1066 Country, wants people to join in the Swim-a-Mile event at Summerfelds Leisure Centre, which is on Sunday, April 28 from 5pm to 6pm. Entry is £5.

Paul Harris, the charity’s chairman, said: “We are looking for individuals and teams to take part so people can split the mile distance among two or more team members if they wish. It is a competition but the overriding aim is to get as many swimmers as possible in the water and involved in raising money for local disabled children.”
