SWIMMERS are needed to take the plunge for a charity event.
The British Red Cross is looking for more swimmers from Huddersfield to join its team for The Great North Swim in June.
The one-mile open water race takes place in Lake Windermere in the heart of the Lake District.
The scenic venue boasts panoramic view of the surrounding lakes and mountains.
There will be hundreds of spectators cheering competitors for the weekend event on June 18 and 19.
Max Newton, senior fundraiser at the British Red Cross, said: “The Great North Swim is a truly unique experience.
“Open water swimming has really taken off in the UK since British swimmers won medals and the hearts of the public at the 2008 Athens Olympics.
“Now there are several open water swims open to the public across the UK, but the Great North Swim was the first and remains the most stunning experience.
“I guarantee everyone who finishes will be left with a fantastic sense of personal achievement for both finishing this amazing swim and for raising money for the life-saving work.”
The entry fee is £37 with a £150 sponsorship target.
Members of the team are provided with sponsorship support, race help from start to finish and a charity t-shirt.
