Our 5th Annual Charity swimathon was held on Sunday 7th July 2019. A huge thank you to all of the teams who participated with 61 swimmers of all ages completing a total of 2108 lengths of the pool at the Washington Leisure Centre to raise funds for the 'FACT' - 'Fighting all cancers together' and other great local causes.
Well done to everyone for your efforts in supporting this event. Our appreciation also goes to the management and staff of 'Everyone Active' for their co-operation and assistance. Finally, not forgetting our own organisers and marshals for their time in planning and running the event.
