SWIMMERS across the Portsmouth region are urged to sign up for a fundraising swim this April.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is inviting people to sign up to its swimathon from April 26 to 28, where swimmers can take part in 5k, 2.5k and 1.5k individual challenges, or team 5k and 1.5k swims.

The money will go towards helping Marie Curie nurses care for terminally-ill people.

Community fundraiser in Hampshire Sally Sansom said: ‘Every year people across Hampshire take on a swimathon challenge and have a great time raising funds along the way. We hope even more people will take the plunge and raise funds to help Marie Curie nurses provide more free nursing care to terminally-ill people in their own homes.’
