A huge thank you from the Rotary Club of Swindon North to all the fantastic teams who entered our charity Swimathon 2018.

The Swimathon and Grand Draw have raised £4546.30

The money will be shared by these 6 charities -
Inner Flame                        £3130.63
Helen Douglas House        £481.90
Dolphins ASC                    £424.45
Highworth ASC                  £215.80
Highworth Phoenix Diving Club   £139.38
Freshbrook Brownies         £154.14

Whilst the Rotary Swimathon is not a race nor a trial of endurance one individual’s performance is worthy of note

15-year old Kerry Rutherford swam for nearly 4 hours and completed a staggering 390 lengths of the pool which well and truly smashed her marathon effort at last year's Swimathon. She has taken part in the Rotary Swimathon every year and increases the number of lengths every time.

In all nearly 60 swimmers took part
