Swimmers are being encouraged to take to the pool for Swimathon 2015 and raise money for Marie Curie.

Swimathon, the world’s biggest annual fundraising swim, urges swimmers across the country to dive into one of the 600 participating pools and raise vital funds the cancer charity.

Taking place across the weekend of 17-19 April, this year’s event is set to be the biggest yet.

And there’s no need to travel far because the Allander Leisure Centre in Bearsden is taking part.

In 2013, 285 swimmers across Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire raised £22,600 for Marie Curie.
