A WATER baby from Sheffield will be taking on a swimming challenge to raise money for charity.

Rebecca Williams, from Gleadless, is taking part in the Swim Trek Lake District Challenge, which will see her take part in a series of swims in Crummock water and Buttermere in Cumbria.

The 26-year-old will be raising money for the Aspire charity, supporting people with spinal injuries in the UK.

The event on August 6 and 7 will be the first time Rebecca has taken on an open water swim.
