A HUGE thank you to the swimmers who gave up an hour on Sunday, 13 October to swim in the Annual lion's Swimathon to raise funds for the club.
We entered 2 relay teams, one of which consisted of swimmers from Beginners and Improvers, who amazed us all by how well they swam lengths (especially impressive as most had only ever swum widths before for WSC!). The second team was of more advanced swimmers, showing them the sort of swimming they can hope to achieve in years to come.
James and Ella Murphy carried on from the Arena League, the night before, racing up and down to put in the lengths with Erin Degregorio, Lucy Hopkins, and little Josh Marshall (age 7) who despite being only in Improvers 3, impressed everyone with his speed and determination to keep up with the older team. Ella finished her weekend off by continuing straight onto training that night!
The swimmers were enormously enthusiastic, showing great team spirit, and making the event really enjoyable for everyone.
Presentation night will be held at the Guildhall in January, and the next Swimathon will be held in May 2015.
