Charity swimmers raise money for Diabetes UK

A CHARITY relay swim covering the length of the English Channel in Oban’s Atlantis pool on Sunday has so far raised £900, well over twice its £350 target, for Diabetes UK. Local organiser Ben Pollock, himself a type one diabetic, swam 100 lengths of the 1,416 required to equal the 22-mile distance between England and France, followed by dozens of other sponsored swimmers, including Ben’s girlfriend Lisa who finished 20 lengths, and his son Matthew who complet- aged five, managed two lengths. Diabetes UK’s national fundraising event, called Swim 22, is meant to run over three months, but Ben planned it to last one day from 8am to 4pm, with the help of his friends and family.
