The Rotary Club of Portishead Annual Swimathon held at Parish Wharf Leisure Centre on 19th March was an outstanding success, in fact, an all time record.  

94 teams took part with over 600 swimmers.  Combined, they swam a total of 6,585 lengths, 700 more lengths than last year.  This equates to a little over 102 miles, or 5 laps of the English Channel !!  

It will take some time before we know how much money was raised, last year raised £13,200, so for this year - watch this space !  Our main Charity is the Children's Hospice South West at Charlton Farm, Wraxall but we will also be supporting many other local charities.

We are so grateful to all our sponsors throughout the area without whose support the event would not be the success that it is.  A special mention must be made of Sainsbury's, Portishead for their support in enabling us to provide 'goodie bags' to all the swimmers after they had completed their swims.  Thank you Sainsbury's and their public relations co-ordinator Pauline Rayner.

Date for the diary - Saturday 25th March 2017 - be prepared !
