An 18-year-old is set to swim the length of the English Channel to raise money for a mental health charity.

Harry Barnes will swim a gruelling 1,324 lengths at Royston Leisure Centre tomorrow – and he’s hoping people will help him drum up funds for mental health charity Together in the process.

The charity works to give people with mental health issues the ability to lead independent lives. Harry will start at 6am and aims to finish ‘as quickly as possible’.
