Sponsored swim raises £400

A 60-year-old who swam from Branksome to Boscombe Pier to raise money for the RNLI has handed over a cheque for £400 to lifeguards.
Long distance swimmer Derek Biggs took the 5km sponsored challenge in August.
Mr Biggs uses the stretch of water for triathlon training and wanted to repay the lifeguards in the area for the service they provide.
He said: "Bournemouth is ideal training area with one of the best-lifeguarded beaches in the country and miles of safe swimming from Poole to well past Boscombe.
"Having swum at other beaches you realise just how well lifeguarded Bournemouth and Poole are."
