Get in the swim for Diabetes UK

If you're looking for an accessible fitness challenge in the New Year, then how about swimming the distance of the English Channel - in your own local swimming pool?

Diabetes UK NI is inviting people to sign up to its Swim22 challenge and swim 22 miles - the distance across the English Channel - over the course of three months.

The challenge will be running from February 22 to May 22, 2016, giving you plenty of time to complete the challenge at your own speed.

Money raised through sponsorship will help us to fund research into diabetes, campaign on key issues, and offer education and support to more than 90,000 people in Northern Ireland who are living with the condition.

To sign up, visit, or call 0345 123 2399.
