Young Anna Beech, 10, set herself the challenge of swimming 35 lengths of the pool at Daventry Leisure Centre in 30 minutes on Wednesday

She was raising money for Project Linus in Northamptonshire, which sews quilts and security blankets for traumatised and very sick children. By the time she got into the water Anna had already raised £200.
