Charity appeals for swimmers

SWIMMERS took the plunge and raised money for a disabled children’s charity.

The sponsored swim at Strode Leisure Centre in Clevedon saw six teams of swimmers take to the water.

The 30 swimmers, as well as Springboard Opportunity Group staff and their families, hope to have raised �1,000 through the event.

It will go to the charity, which supports children with disabilities and additional needs across North Somerset.

The winners of the swim were Paddy Trower, Tom Jones, George Harris and Hayley Fitzgerald.
