And a club spokesperson said: "We would like to thank everyone that took part in the event to make it such a huge success. A huge thank you to everyone who came along to swim, to support us and for generous donations.

"We had friends and families all swimming together for a good cause and they smashed it. A total of 3,361 lengths and 84,025 metres swam in less than three hours, the equivalent of swimming the Channel and back, just incredible!

"The Just Giving total now stands at £1150 and it's still not too late for anyone donate."
