A huge improvement on last year!

On Friday 2nd, GWPC was represented by 30 swimmers across five lanes to compete in the annual rotary Swimarathon, raising money for local charities and good causes.

This year is extra special because it's the Rotary Club's 35th anniversary with an ambitious goal of smashing their donation record and reaching £1M raised since the event began. Each lane was targeted to raise £200.

In 2023 GWPC recorded 167 laps for Team A, 191 laps for Team B, and 186 laps for Team C! A total of 544, with a lane average of 181 lengths. The cash raised totalled £622.

This year, we raised a whopping £1150 (with donations still coming in).
Lane 1 GWPC Tadpoles - 192
Lane 2 GWPC Megaladons - 196
Lane 3 GWPC Rippers - 219
Lane 4 GWPC Crustaceans - 182
Lane 5 GWPC Trouts - 226
Total - 1015
Length average 203

Thank you to all participants and their families for the generous donations and efforts raising sponsorship from family, friends and neighbours.
Also, well done to all swimmers too. Putting out a higher length average than last year demonstrates a worthy stamina/speed improvement.

Finally, please send me a direct message to arrange the payment and collection of any outstanding sponsorship pledges.
