Charity splashes cash.

Young swimmers have been swimming for charity, raising hundreds of pounds for Hit The Road Jack - a charity helping deaf children and their families.

The 11 and 12-year-olds from the City of Cardiff Swimming Club, D7 Squad, held a sponsored swim to raise money for the charity at Howells school in Llandaff.

Hit the Road Jack is a charity set up by the parents of Jack Harries, who was born profoundly deaf in 2002. Jack is the only child in South Wales to have a cochlear implant and now has some hearing and is doing well in his overall communication. His parents Will and Sarah want to support other parents whose children have been diagnosed as being deaf.

Will Harries' main fundraising event will be a sponsored walk from Cardiff to Swansea and back, for which he has raised more than pounds 2,000.
