LAKES will form the main part of a fundraising challenge this month - but those taking part won't be getting wet!

Staff and friends of Ruthin's Ysgol Pen Barras are preparing for the event, which will see them walking around three North Wales lakes in just 24 hours.

The challenge is taking place to raise funds for SANDS.

On March 17, participants will meet at Llyn Brenig to complete the first part of the challenge.

Then, at 7am on March 18, lake number two - Llyn Tegid, in Bala - will be completed, before those taking part will head off to Llyn Alwen for the final part.

"We are collecting for SANDS as this is a charity close to our hearts," said an Ysgol Pen Barras spokesperson.

"We are very greatful for the donations so far and would appreciate any more.

"We would like to thank Stephen Roberts and Eilir Edwards for purchasing the T-shirts for the events."

There is a Just Giving page for the challenge and more than £1,200 has so far been realised.
