Grand Charity Swimathon 2016 - Funds raised
24th April 2016 at the Highworth Recreation Centrethumbnail view
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.
Each 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.
"Well done to all our Swimmers"
