Herald Sharks to make splash in Sidmouth Swimathon

Editorial staff take to the water to help boost Sidmouth Living With Cancer mini-bus appeal

EDITORIAL staff from Archant South West, which owns the Sidmouth Herald, are to make a splash for charity.

The Herald Sharks, comprising Belinda Bennett, Diana Bowerman, Ellen Cook, Stefan Gordon, Katy Griffin and Kingsley Squire, aim to swim as many lengths of Sidmouth Swimming Pool as possible as the Herald Sharks - to raise money for Sidmouth Living With Cancer Support Group.

The group’s minibus appeal is this year’s Sidmouth Herald campaign, so staff decided to take part in this year’s Rotary Swimathon, organised by the Rotary Club of Sidmouth.

Swimmers will take to the water at the end of next month and are keen to attract sponsorship.

If you would like to sponsor the Herald team, visit Kennaway House, Sidmouth, on Monday, 9am-5pm or Friday mornings until 1pm, or Honiton Tourist Information Centre on Wednesday or Thursday.

Teams of five or more are invited to apply for entry forms from David Raistrick on (01395) 519183 or email dmraistrick@btinternet.com.
