HELENSBURGH'S annual sponsored swim for Christian Aid takes place at Helensburgh Swimming Pool this Thursday, May 17, from 6.30-8.30pm.

Raising money for Christian Aid, swimmers need to be able to swim a complete length of the pool without holding on to the side.

The lengths will be counted by a person at the end of each lane.

Sponsor forms are available from local schools and from the pool itself, or by contacting Elizabeth Lambert on (01436) 679565.
