Lytham St Annes Lions will be supporting Brian House children’s hospice at their 31st annual swimarathon later this month – and there is still chance to take part.

The fund-raiser takes place at St Annes YMCA Pool on Sunday, January 29 and already more than 50 teams have signed up. Last year’s event raised £15,000 towards the screening of young people for heart problems via the charity Cardiac Risk In The Young .

The money raised this year will be used to improve the hospice’s family accommodation area.

Michelle Lonican, Brian House community fundraiser, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have the Lions’ support. Every length swum will help us provide comfort and care for children and their families on the Fylde Coast.”
