The Rotary Club of Swindon North & Thamesdown have raised around £4,500 from sponsorship for a Swimathon challenge
The Rotary Club of Swindon North & Thamesdown's say that this May's Swimathon has been their most successful to date.
The charity event was held at Highworth Recreation Centre on Sunday, 22 May.
74 entrants swam a total of 5,676 lengths of a 25-metre swimming pool. The Rotary team estimate that this is roughly the distance from Highworth to Bristol and back again.
In the process they will raise around £4,500 in sponsorship - the Rotary club say the final figure will not be known until the end of next month when all the money should be in.
The proceeds will be shared by the Swindon Food Collective, and the other charities and organisations chosen by the swimmers themselves.
Completion certificates and medals were presented to all the participants by Cher Smith MBE, the Manager of Swindon’s food bank, the Swindon Food Collective.
