A GROUP of ladies from Ringwood and Fordingbridge have raised more than £6,000 by swimming the Channel in relay.
Beckie Spry from Ringwood and Gemma Peat, Gill Muldoon and Viv Artingstall, all from Fordingbridge, made the crossing in 15-and-a-half hours, with help from their friends Lucy Hawthorne and Emma Christison.
Mrs Artingstall’s 14-year-old son Liam was in a men’s team, who made it across about 15 minutes faster.
The group decided to raise cash for the RNLI, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, and Macmillan Cancer Care.
