Swimmer Karen McMillan-Jones with Yorkshire Cancer Reserch's Louise Robinson and Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Gym in Harrogate deputy general manager Tom Woollard.

Karen covered 1,804 lengths in Nuffield Health Centre’s 20 metre pool raising £1,200 for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

A miscalculation saw Karen swim 44 lengths more than she needed to but she said: “If I’d have pushed myself I could’ve done 2,000!”
