Our swimathon took place on 25th February and we had nearly 30 swimmers taking part to achieve the 21 miles that we needed to ‘Swim the Channel’. A tall order for just 30 swimmers!! Well they all did so well and not only swam the channel, but headed back again – in total managing to swim 26 miles!! It was the furthest that some of our supporters had swam before and it was all worth it. All our wonderful swimmers have managed to raise £4,250 between them with more funds coming in.
We would like to thank all those that took part in the event and also all those that helped bake cakes and count lengths. Also a big thank you to Soar Valley Leisure Centre for allowing us to use their pool and for supplying lifeguards.
