TWO Spalding PE teachers are making a big splash about their plans to swim the Channel this summer.

Nikki Saines and Alice Dooley, who work together at the South Holland Post-16 Centre, were inspired to start training for the challenge by Alice’s sister’s struggle to live with Type 1 Diabetes since she was diagnosed, aged four.

They are booked in to swim to France from August 17 to 24 in aid of Diabetes UK, and are holding the Channel Swim Charity Ball to raise extra funds at the South Holland Centre on February 17.
