Participants helped to raise money for Sport Relief through Swimathon’s established 1.5k, 2.5k and 5k distance challenges.

The sports centre at Melbourn Village College was one of more than 600 pools nationwide hosting Swimathon events under the Sport Relief banner.

Manager Graham Johnson-Mack said: “It was fantastic to see so many people in our community getting in the pool for this fundraising challenge. People taking part seemed to have fun, as well as raising money for a great cause.”
