A Petersfield care home resident is going to great lengths to raise help for the Alzheimer’s Society as she’s midway through a month-long swimming challenge.

Dot Holman wants to swim five miles for the good cause this November as she knows a few people affected by dementia.

The 83-year-old South Downs Care resident has set a £150 target. Well-wishers can splash the cash by searching for Dot Holman at www.justgiving.com
