Molyneux raised Money for Charity

TOM MOLYNEUX swam a mile at the Ryan Centre pool in Stranraer to raise money for the Sharon Davies Cancer Appeal.

Then he added another five lengths for good measure and could have gone further but he ran out of time.

Nothing special about that, you say? Wait until you are 77 then give it a go!

Tom, a retired welder who lives at 25 Gallowhill Rise, Stranraer, raised 125 for the charity in his swim, which meant a minimum of 65 lengths.

His 70-length marathon lasted 90 minutes.

A native of Lancashire, Tom has been swimming since he was eight years old when his brother threw him into the local canal.

He moved to Stranraer after coming to the area to visit a sister and found he liked it a lot.

He was a welder at West Freugh and a variety of other places, including Sealink, his last job of 14 years, before he retired.
