A MOTHER is taking the plunge to raise money for charity.
Social worker Catherine Roberts, 36, of Chester-le-Street, will do the Grasmere Channel Swim, in the Lake District, in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust on Saturday, July 7.
Swimmers can choose a 1km or 2km route.
Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UK’s most common, life-threatening inherited diseases and claims two lives a week.
The money raised will help the trust fund vital research.
