More than 120 people took the plunge at Elmbridge Xcel Leisure Centre at the national swimathon in aid of Marie Curie.

The centre, which has always been involved in the swimathon, welcomed a record number of teams this year.

Schools sent teams of children along and many families also took part in the charity event.

Xcel staff also dived in, with teams of people from sales, lifeguards and swimming teachers all taking to the water.

The swimathon took place on Saturday, April 27, from noon to 8pm.
