Swimmers wanted for charity challenge
SWIMMERS of all ages are being sought by Portishead Rotary Club for its 16th annual swimathon next month.
More than 400 swimmers entered into the pool challenge at Parish Wharf Leisure Centre in 2011, which raised more than �11,000 for charity.
The big swim has already seen more than 30 teams sign up for this year’s event which will be opened by BBC weather girl Jemma Cooper.
Swimmers wanting to take part on March 24 need to be able to swim in relay, with five other team members, for at least 35 minutes. Teams of six people are required but individuals can enter, forming a team with other individuals who register their interest.
Rotary spokesman Miles Williams said: “The annual swimathon is always a popular event with those from five to 90-years-old taking part. It is always packed with lots of fun and laughter.”
