KEEN swimmers are being invited to make a splash and raise cash for St Richard's Hospice at a charity event on February 3.

The hospice's annual Swimathon takes place at New College on Whittington Road in Worcester and is open to all ages and abilities.

Fund-raiser Sarah Patrick, said: "Everyone is welcome to come along to the 25metre pool to see how far they can swim in an allocated half-hour slot. Participants can either get sponsored per length or just for taking part."

Anyone interested in taking the plunge can register and take the place in the charity fund-raiser from 11am.

Call 01905 763963, e-mail spatrick@strichards.org.uk or visit www.strichards.org.uk/swimathon for more information.
