Editorial team makes a splash for ShelterBox.

Midweek Herald editor Belinda Bennett, reporter Katy Griffin and Di Bowerman, news editor of the Sidmouth Herald, hope they won’t be out of their depth when they take part in their second swimathon in a year.

The team is to make a splash at Sidmouth Swimming Pool in aid of ShelterBox, in October.

Last year, the Sharks completed 60 lengths during an hour-long, non-stop relay and raised hundreds of pounds for a Living With Cancer minibus.

This year’s event is again being run by the Rotary Club of Sidmouth.

To sponsor the Sharks, or find out more, contact Di Bowerman on (01392) 888502.
