A CHARITY event delayed by the winter floods saw people from all over Winchester diving in head-first to raise some serious cash.

Sixteen teams gathered for this year’s Winchester Rotary swimathon, taking to the water at Winchester College sports club.

The event, originally meant to have taken place in February, was pushed back after the floods submerged the pool building in Kingsgate Street.

This year people have been swimming for such projects as the Wessex Centre and the Rainbow Centre in Fareham.
