The trio, who all train at the British Para-Swimming National Performance Centre based at the Manchester Aquatics Centre, were supporting the event and encouraging people across Manchester to jump in to one of the 13 participating pools.

Taking part over the weekend of 7-9 April 2017, the event will raise vital funds for Marie Curie, the UK’s leading charity for people living with a terminal illness and their families.

Swimmers can challenge themselves to the 5k, 2.5k or 1.5k Individual or Team 5k or 1.5k distances and raise funds for Marie Curie.
