Rotary raises money with swimathon
FOURTEEN swim teams made a splash last week and made more than �3,000 for charity.
They were taking part in the Rotary Club of Royston’s annual sponsored Swimathon at the Royston Leisure Centre on Sunday (13).
Teams from The Rotary, Meridian School, Royston Army Cadets, Royston Scouts, Royston Guides and Bassingbourn Barracks were amongst those competing.
They had to swim as many lengths as possible in 55 minutes, with one of the Meridian teams notching up 164.
Rotary president Jonathan Berks said: “The success again of our now annual swimathon was due to all those who took part.

Money raised will go to a variety of causes, including Royston Day Centre, the Myeloma UK Charity and the Firefighters Charity.
