Three teenager swimmers from Broadstairs are taking on a 12 hour challenge to raise money for the Rainbow children’s ward at Margate’s QEQM Hospital.
Emily 19, Ruhi 17 and Matthew 16, are aiming to swim 12 miles in 12 hours at the St Lawrence College pool in Ramsgate.
The trio, who are members of Broadstairs Lifeguard and Swimming Club, have a justgiving target of £1,000.
Matthew said: “. We are swimming for 12 hours to raise money for the children’s ward at QEQM. Emily is swimming for them as they did quite a bit for her when she was 7 after she broke her leg. We all want to raise as much money as possible for this worthwhile cause.”
The swim takes place on August 25.
