WORCESTER Swimming Pool and Perdiswell Leisure Centre in Worcester will both be helping charity tomorrow, Friday August 22, by encouraging employees to don a pair of funky shorts and support "Wear Your Shorts to Work Day".

Wear Your Shorts to Work Day, created by Heart Research UK, challenges people all across the UK to start the August Bank Holiday weekend early by wearing shorts to work

Staff at the pool and centre, who wear shorts, will each donate money for the privilege.

All of the money raised through Wear Your Shorts to Work Day will go towards the Helping Little Hearts campaign, which helps young heart patients with their rehabilitation, after they leave hospital.

David Pugh, Contract Manager at the two centres said: " I am very pleased that we are all so willing and excited about getting together to raise money for such a good cause."
