Speaking ahead of the event, Sam, who is an employee of Salford Watersports Centre, said: “It’s kind of like the end of the year because after we move onto the cold water swim, which then becomes the weekly swim, so it’s the last evening swim of the year.

“We have people coming in fancy dress, we decorate around the base and in the centre and stuff like that, then we make hot drinks and soups for people afterwards.

“It’s not for a specific event or specific charity. it’s just sort of an end of season swim for our open water swimmers.”

The event is solely for confident swimmers, who can swim for at least 300m, with the water temperature set to be around 12-14 degrees.
