A charity giving children with disabilities one-to-one swimming lessons has announced one of its new series of 24-hour swim relays for Worcester.

One of national charity Level Water's open water challenges, the first of their kind, will be hosted by Watersedge.

The event will welcome swimmers of varying abilities to form teams of up to eight.

Participants will swim in rotation for one hour each, over a 24-hour period.

The event, which aims for stamina rather than speed, encourages swimmers to boost one another's spirits throughout, even at 4am when batteries are running low.

Alongside the swim, participants can huddle around the campfire, share stories and drink hot chocolate as the sun rises.

The proceeds from the relay will help fund swimming lessons for children with disabilities.

The Worcester event will start on Saturday 28 before concluding on Sunday, September 29.
