Total sum raised - £3,706.  Thank you everyone who took part for this fantastic result possible.

We had a terrific response - an entry of more than 60 sponsored swimmers in 16 teams. The Swindon Down's Syndrome Support Group entered teams as did the Swindon Dolphins.

Kerry Rutherford swam for 4 hoursEach team swam for 55 minutes but teenager Kerry Rutherford (pictured) swam for the whole 4 hours of the Swimathon. She completed 342 lengths of the pool which is a distance of more than 5 miles – an absolutely fantastic achievement. It’s no surprise that In 2015 Kerry was given a Pride of Swindon award in recognition of her prolific fundraising activities, activities which are obviously on-going this year.
