Daring Channel Swimmers Won't Be Suiting Up

8:56am 27th January 2015

They're going to endure freezing cold conditions for 22 miles but these local charity channel swimmers won't even be wearing wet suits.

The “Cheek Channel Champs” are taking on the arduous challenge to raise money for Life Education Wessex, which supports thousands of children in Dorset.

Thomas Craven is one of the six swimmers and he said the training alone is gruelling.

He told Wessex FM: "We're all in the pool at least an hour a day so about 7-10 hours a week. Also as spring comes along we're going to be upping our training in the sea too."

Donations can also be made on their fundraising page HERE.
