Additional swim information:
This swim was in aid of Babyhouse, a charity launched by Al and Lucy Petrie in 2004 to raise money for a £25,000 state-of-the-art incubator, which helps critically ill premature babies. They will donate it to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where their own twin boys received care after being born at just seven months old.
