Swimathon challenge

A BRIDLINGTON man is hoping to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care by taking part in the national swimathon weekend at the end of the month.

David Banks, 74, of Pinfold Grove, will swim 5 kilometres - the equivalent of 200 lengths at Bridlington’s Leisure World swimming pool - in aid of the charity on Saturday April 28 and Sunday 29.

David is hoping that local people will sponsor him to raise as much money as possible for Marie Curie when he takes part in the Swimathon, a national event held to raise funds for the cancer care charity.
