A 24-HOUR swim will be taking place tomorrow (Wed) to raise money for the future of a swimming club.

More than 30 children from the Torridgeside Swimming Club will be taking part in the event, starting at 7am.

The swim will take place in the Torrington swimming pool to celebrate its reopening after 12 months of closure.

Finances have been tight for the club with the closure of the pool, so it is hoping the swim will help give them a financial boost.
