Charity swimmers

NUMBERS were up on last year for the annual Jewish Auxiliary Group sponsored swim in aid of Cancer Research UK.

There were 24 participants, swimming up to 20 lengths, at this year's event at the Eastwood Park Leisure Centre on Sunday.

The swim has been running for more than 40 years, raising more than 60,000 in the process.

JAG chairman Carole Blake said: "It has been lovely to welcome new swimmers as well as our regulars."

Participants included four-year-old Reuben Gabbay, a veteran of four swims, and university student and youth worker Daniel Cohen, who has been a regular since he was four.

The biggest family representation came from Jake, Jonah and Kaleb Vulkan and their dad Jeff.

Tunnocks provided tea cakes and wafers for participants.
