Swimmers go wild to complete charity marathon

Swimmers braved the December cold today [Sunday] to complete their charity marathon – and raise thousands of pounds for Cancer Research in the process.

The six swimmers have so far raised over £19,000 for Cancer Research UK, over three times their initial fundraising target.

Today, they ended their cold water challenge by filling Bain’s Beach in Lerwick.

It comes after Anita Georgeson, Wendy Hatrick, Glynis Harcus, Linda Moncrieff, Emma Williamson and Jane Murphy took on the challenge to swim in a different location every day during November. And they certainly fulfilled their aim to pack out the beach with wild swimmers from far and wide.
