FORTY swimmers from the Huntingdon Piranhas club swapped their swim gear for walking boots over half-term to complete a sponsored walk.

The swimmers trekked eight miles around Grafham Water to raise £1,500 for the club, some of which will be donated to the Children's Hospice in Milton.

The hospice provides care and support for terminally ill children and their families such as respite care and end-of-life care.

Piranhas team manager Nigel Prouten said: "All the kids thoroughly enjoyed the walk and we are delighted to be able to make a contribution to such a worthwhile local charity."
