Charity swimmers are being urged to make a splash next month to help raise funds for a children's hospice.

East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) at Quidenham has joined up with the Waterworld swimming pool in Thetford for the Swim for Kids event.

Participants will be able to take part in the swimathon for free at the pool in Croxton Road, which will take place on October 1, 8 and 15.

Simon Hempsall from EACH said: “As much as 75pc of our income comes from voluntary public donations, so support from companies like Waterworld is so important. Swim for Kids is a great opportunity to make a splash and have fun whilst raising money to make a big difference to children and families who need the care and support offered by a children's hospice.”

To register for Swim for Kids, contact Sue Meader on 01953 715559.
