TEAMS of up to six swimmers are being invited to take part in an annual fundraiser in Ringwood.

Ringwood & Fordingbridge Lions Club will be taking over the pool at Ringwood Health & Leisure Club in Parsonage Barn Lane on March 16 at 2pm for their annual Swimarathon.

Teams can raise funds for their chosen charity or local project, with half the money going to Lions charities.

Entry is free and each team member will need to arrange their own sponsorship for the event. Sponsorship packs are available now free of charge to anyone wishing to enter a team.

Contact Geoff Kay to register, by email at or on 0845 8335819.
