    Arron Gould raises his cheque for Christie Hospital in triumph

    14-year-old who swam to raise £30,000 for charity has attracted the attention of an Olympic swimmer.

    Arron Gould, from Prestwich, was trained by British Olympic silver medallist Kerri-Anne Payne before his 15K marathon swim on Sunday. Arron, a pupil at Manchester Grammar School, raised the money for the Christie Cancer Hospital after his grandmother, Marlene Gould, died of cancer.

    His school donated the use of its pool to Arron, who was on its winning team at the national under-14s water polo championships this year.

    Mrs Gould, who died in May, spent years as a founding member of Headstart, which offers patients stylish head-coverings to help cope with hair loss as a result of chemotherapy.
