MAYBE they're brave, maybe they're foolhardy, but one thing they certainly are is good sports.

Eight members of the Ipswich Snorkel Club took to the chilly Felixstowe waters in a sponsored Boxing Day swim around the town's pier.

The half-an-hour swim was in aid of Felixstowe Volunteer Patrol Service and it is hoped that £500 will be raised.

Among those taking part were 11-year-olds Spencer Hastings and Roxanne Marsh.
