Health charity Diabetes UK Cymru is appealing for people to take on a sponsored swim in Llyn Tegid to raise funds to support people living with diabetes across Wales.
The charity is appealing for swimmers to sign up its annual one-mile swim in the picturesque Llyn Tegid, in the Snowdonia National Park, Bala, on Sunday 21 September.
Money raised by the swim will enable the charity to help support for the 173,000 people in Wales who have been diagnosed with diabetes and their families.
Last year people who took part raised an impressive £5000 for the charity in total and swimmers this year are hoping to raise even more money.
Dai Williams, National Director of Diabetes UK Cymru, said: “We are delighted that people from across Wales will be getting their wetsuits ready and challenging themselves to swim Llyn Tegid this month.
“Money raised by the swimmers will help us to provide advice, support and information to people living with diabetes throughout Wales.
“Most of us know someone who has been affected by the condition and we hope that lots of people will take on the challenge to show their support for people living with diabetes across the country.”
Entry for the swim is free, but swimmers must be over the age of 15 to take part. Supporters are also invited to enjoy a lakeside fun day that will be held on the banks of the lake that will include plenty of activities and refreshments.
Swimmers must also wear a full length swimsuit to participate.
