THE Rotary Club of Royston is hoping to raise £7,500 from this year's Swimathon 2008.
The event will be taking place at the Royston Leisure Centre on the evenings of October 18-19.
Chris Hardy, the club's community service chairman, said: "If we can get 36 teams to take part, we should easily be able to reach our target."
Last year more than £5,000 was raised at the event which led to donations being shared between the East Anglia Children's Hospice, the Meldreth Manor School and Addenbrooke's hospital's paediatric oncology unit, as well as Rotary charities.
