Out To Swim members will swim from Dover to Calais to raise money for Central London Samaritans
A gay and lesbian relay team will be swimming the 21 miles of the English Channel for charity this week.
Six members of British club Out To Swim will plunge into the 14 degree waters off the coast of England, swimming one by one for an hour at a time, before reaching Calais in France.
They will be doing this task in the aim of raising money for the Central London Samaritans, a charity that provides confidential emotional support for anyone experiencing feelings of distress or despair, which can lead to suicide.
All experienced swimmers, the six gay men and women have trained for months to be able to withstand the ice cold temperatures and marathon distance.
