He became the most-decorated male British swimmer, winning 51 major international medals, and went to five Olympics.

Since then Foster has been a regular on TV shows such as Strictly Come Dancing.

Since it was formed in 1982 by local business people, the Armchair Club has donated more than £200,000.
