SWIMMERS are being asked to get in the pool for Kemp Hospice's annual Swimathon.

The Feel Good Health Club at the Mercure Hotel in Bewdley will be hosting the 12-hour event on Sunday, May 18.

Participants will be able to swim for as much or as little as they like with swimming slots of five, 10, 15, 30 minutes or a full hour available.

Kate Wilkinson, events fundraiser for Kemp, said “Last year saw a great range of participants from individual swimmers, family groups and colleagues.

"We had a group from the fire service last year, maybe we should challenge any of the other emergency services to beat the phenomenal amount of laps the fire service completed."

Kemp Hospice offers specialist care and support to patients, families and carers who are dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement.

To register, visit or groups can call Kate Wilkinson on 01562 756066
