Over the last few months Vinehall pupil, Faris, completed a charity swim for Diabetes UK.  Swimming the equivalent distance of the English Channel over a three-month period, he raised £240 for the charity to help raise awareness of diabetes in children.

To complete the distance Faris swam 1500 lengths of a 25 metres pool, managing to fit them in after school, at weekends and during the holidays.

Well done Faris on this marathon effort! What an achievement.
