Teams needed for charity swimathon

PUBLISHED: 08:28 08 February 2012

TEAMS for this year’s Rotary Club of Royston’s Charity Swimathon are being sought for the end of the month.

Organiser Tony Briar said: “This has always been a tremendous event and helps raise a lot of money for various charities.

“We are looking for teams to take part this year with the aim of them completing as many lengths as possible. The more lengths completed then the more money is raised,” he said.

Scheduled to take place on Sunday February 26 between 6-10pm at Royston Leisure Centre the event will see teams of six swimming in relay for a total of 55 minutes.

Teams will are urged to obtain sponsorship and this year the Rotary Club of Royston is supporting the Phoenix Group for Deaf Children and the Alzheimer’s Society and other charities.

Last year 14 teams entered the event and raised more than £3,000 for charity.
