Teams needed for charity swimathon

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.

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.
