The second annual sponsored open water swim in Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) will take place on Sunday 25 September 2011.  It is organised by the charity Diabetes UK Cymru to raise funds for supporting people with diabetes in Wales.

Twenty people swam last year and raised over £7,500. We hope to at least double both those numbers this year.
