Applications for the 42nd Christmas Day Swim in Lowestoft have now opened for charities and organisations hoping to benefit from the money raised this winter.

Matt Stebbings, physical activity and health manager at Sentinel Leisure Trust, who organise the event, said: "Since the swim began, we donate all of the sponsorship money to local organisations and charities who serve the community within the Lowestoft and Waveney area.

"The money raised makes a real difference to those living in the community."

To apply, complete a charity application form at www.sltrust.co.uk/xmasdayswim before 4pm on Friday, October 18.
