Melbourn Sports Centre is a non-profit organisation and centre users, young and old, have taken on a marathon swimming challenge, Ironman challenges and an Aqua Fit marathon to drum up funds in the last six months.

It has now been announced that almost £8,000 has been raised from the challenges and donations from firms TTP Group, Tesco, Hotel Chocolat and Fieldgate Nurseries.

Manager Graham Mack said: “We have been fortunate to be able to keep the facility constantly running to a high standard since its 1991 inauguration.

“But we now need to make some essential ‘wear and tear’ repairs in order for our indoor swimming pool to continue functioning properly for future generations to enjoy and to learn to swim in.

“We are overwhelmed by the generous support we have received from the community, especially those who put in all that hard work in the pool to raise so much money - without them, we would have struggled to achieve our goal.”
