A FERNHURST man is hoping to swim his way to £1,000 for a charitable cause.

In April, Chris Davies is taking part in a swimathon to raise funds for Marie Curie, and he is looking for sponsorship.

His target is five kilometres, or 200 lengths of the pool, which equates to roughly two-and-a-half hours’ continual swimming.

This is his second sponsored swim.

Last year, Chris swam for Sport Relief, completing 5k in under two-and-a-half hours while raising more than £1,000.

This year he hopes he will improve both his time and his total.
