Swimathon teams wanted

PUBLISHED: 10:00 09 March 2015


MORE groups and organisations are being encouraged to enter a team for Portishead’s annual charity swimathon.

To be held at Parish Wharf Leisure Centre on April 25, the event has been put on in the town for the past 19 years by the Rotary Club of Portishead, raising thousands of pounds for good causes.

This year, the charities chosen to benefit are the RNLI Portishead Boathouse Appeal and St Peter’s Hospice. However, teams can also choose to keep half of the money they raise for their own funds.

Teams swim in relay for 35 minutes, with sessions to be held throughout the afternoon.
