A 10-YEAR-OLD swimmer from Clotton took the plunge to raise more than £400 for cancer sufferers.
Becky Scott-Davies, a Year 5 pupil of Duddon St Peter’s Primary School, completed 64 lengths of Christleton Sports Centre’s pool.
The plucky fundraiser was one of the youngest swimmers to tackle the one-mile swimathon in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and Sport Relief.
Olympic gold medallist and swimathon president Duncan Goodhew MBE said: “Becky’s achievement just shows what can be achieved with a little effort.
“It is great to see so many people take on this fantastic fundraising event.”
Mat Edwards, the centre’s swimathon coordinator, added: “Congratulations to all the swimmers who trained so hard to complete their challenge. They should be very proud of their achievement.”
Funds raised from the challenge will go toward providing free Marie Curie nursing care and support for people with terminal cancer and other illnesses.
