GARETH Pelzer and his son Simon will be among those taking to the water at Pugneys Country Park on Father’s Day.
The pair will join hundreds of swimmers in the park’s lake on Sunday for the second Jane Tomlinson’s Yorkshire Swimming Festival.
And Coca Cola delivery driver Mr Pelzer, 54, will be hoping his experience, and retro 1980s wetsuit, is enough to beat his 20-year-old son.
Mr Pelzer of Overton said: “I did it last year and am looking forward to swimming again as there was a great atmosphere.
“I am sure if Simon wanted to he could thrash me, but I hope he will be kind and I can challenge him.
“A few friends of ours are doing it with their daughters, so I am sure there will be a few fathers taking part on the day.”
The Swim For All event is set to be even bigger than last year and will consist of a junior 500m swim for 12-17-year-olds, an open 500m swim, and a 1,500m swim for over 18s.
The swim joins the Run For All and Walk For All events organised by the For All Events team as part of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
The charity was set up by the inspirational fundraiser and has been continued by her family after she lost her battle with cancer in 2007.
To date the charity has raised more than £4m for good causes.
