Gosport Leisure Centre held a sponsored swimathon for Sport Relief with scores of people taking the plunge.
Toni Diaper, 43, Vanessa Povey, 43 and Anji Whitworth, 53, each swam 1.5km and raised £700 altogether.
Toni said: ‘I actually lost count of the lengths.
‘I can’t do any other sport, I’m fairly good at it – so why not do it.’
The centre also saw plenty of fun and games, with all joining in to raise money for the good cause.
Swimmers at Fareham Leisure Centre also took part.
