PEOPLE are being urged to have a splashing time to raise funds for charity.

Altrincham Rotary Club is holding its charity swimathon at the Aquatic Centre, Oxford Road, Manchester, on March 29.

The event is run in conjunction with the fire service’s Prince’s Trust youth programme.

It enables teams of up to six to raise money for their chosen charity and also the Prince’s Trust.
