Eleven-year-old Marta Krupa has raised £3,150 from a charity swim.

Marta, who is in her final year at Swanbourne Swanbourne C of E Primary School, swam 1,200m at Horwood House to raise funds for the Chilterns MS Centre in Wendover, which offers physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, occupational therapy, fatigue management and oxygen therapy to over 300 people per week in the Bucks, Beds and Herts area.

Marta’s father, Andy, who has been living with MS for two years, was able to swim alongside Marta for 1,000m before he had to give up, thanks to the help he hasreceived from the centre.
