TWO colleagues from Yorkshire largest residential letting agents are swapping business suits for wetsuits as they take the plunge for a charity that saves lives at sea.

Lynne Taylor and Nicola Sutton, who work for Linley & Simpson, will brave the icy waters - and flapping swans - of Pugneys Country Park near Wakefield for a 1,500m and 500m swim respectively.

The duo have been preparing this Sunday's splashdown by spending their weekends practising at the park's 100-acre watersports lake - inspired by the many triathletes who also take advantage of its facilities.

TWO colleagues from Yorkshire largest residential letting agents are swapping business suits for wetsuits as they take the plunge for a charity that saves lives at sea.

Lynne Taylor and Nicola Sutton, who work for Linley & Simpson, will brave the icy waters - and flapping swans - of Pugneys Country Park near Wakefield for a 1,500m and 500m swim respectively.

The duo have been preparing this Sunday's splashdown by spending their weekends practising at the park's 100-acre watersports lake - inspired by the many triathletes who also take advantage of its facilities.

All the money they raise will go towards the Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLI).

Lynne, who is an associate director for the agency and heads up its accounts team, said: "We're throwing ourselves in at the deep end as neither of us have done anything like this before. We both love a challenge and are determined to complete the course for a charity that does so much to save lives.."

Nicola, who is personal assistant to the directors, said: "The event has generated a lot of companionship among those taking part - as well as a lot of laughs as we try and swim around the course without being put off our stoke by the geese, swans, herons and other wildlife that land in our way.

"As long as we can paddle as well as they do, we should be all right!"

The Jane Tomlinson Swim for All Yorkshire Swimming Festival will take place at Pugneys Country Park on Sunday (July 10). The event will comprise of an open 500m and 1,500m swim and a 500m junior swim for 12 to 17-year-olds. More than 1,000 people are expected to take part.

Linley & Simpson has a growing network of eight Yorkshire offices - York, Harrogate, Wetherby, Ilkley, Wakefield and three in Leeds.
