AROUND £2,000 has been raised for the mayor of Hereford's two chosen charities from a sponsored swim.
The Haven and Robocap will benefit from the fundraiser which saw mayor Councillor Brian Wilcox; Richard Heatley, principle of the Hereford College of Art; Ian Peake, principal of Herefordshire College of Technology; Nicola Goodwin of BBC Hereford and Worcester Radio; Frankie Devereux, manager of The Hereford Haven; and Patrick Blake, an Olympic qualifier from Hereford Swimming Club, swim at least 60 lengths.
