This year's Swimathon took place on Saturday 13th October at Southwell Leisure Centre. Many thanks to the Scouts, Cubs & Beavers who took part. You can see some of them after their swim in the photo below. They are holding their Certificates alongside the Lions who helped run the event. We are also very grateful to Southwell City Football Club, Southwell Cricket Club, Reach & the Sherwood Archers for entering teams. And not forgetting young Ben Banks who swam all 50 lengths as a team of one!
In 2017 over £1,900 in total was raised in sponsorship of which £670 was donated to Southwell Lions. The balance went to the organisations entering the teams.
