Children and adults all over the country are invited to plunge into their local pools in aid of asthma research during Swim for Asthma! Week, October 5-13. Swimmers are sponsored for each length they complete. Top fundraisers win sports bags and badges. More than 5.1 million people in the UK have asthma, including one in eight children. It is hoped the event will raise pound;150,000, enough to fund a new research project for three years. Contact Heather Burroughs for an organisers' pack.
