The Herald Sharks prepare to make a splash

Reporters get into the swim of fundraising for worthy cause.

EDITORIAL staff from Archant South West, which owns the Midweek Herald, are to make a splash for charity.

The Herald Sharks, comprising Belinda Bennett, Diana Bowerman, Ellen Cook, Stefan Gordon, Katy Griffin and Kingsley Squire, aim to swim as many lengths of Sidmouth Swimming Pool as possible - to raise money for Sidmouth Living With Cancer Support Group.

The group’s minibus appeal is this year’s Sidmouth Herald campaign.

Swimmers will take to the water at the end of next month and are keen to attract sponsorship.

If you would like to sponsor the team, visit Kennaway House, Sidmouth, on Monday or Friday mornings, or Honiton Tourist Information Centre on Wednesday or Thursday.
