Skegness Rotary Swimarathon on 26th February 2017 - Update

The recent Swimarathon run by the Rotary Club of Skegness with local swimmers, Clubs, and Schools taking part has raised an final total of over £10,000 for Charity.

This amazing amount will be used towards the provision of Defibrillators in Skegness, and for the Rotary International project of “Polio Eradication”

A fantastic and Fun morning was spent at the Fresh Fitness Pool on the Richmond Holiday Centre in Skegness where around 100 swimmers took turns to swim in relay to raise the sponsorship for these great causes.

Rotary President Robin Wilkinson said “This will bring enormous benefits to the people of Skegness in the form of the Defibrillators now being placed by the Rotary Club, saving lives that would otherwise be lost

The Club Community Committee Chairman, Norman Prime, stated that more information about the number and the location of these wonderful assets would be published very soon, and he thanked the people of Skegness for their great achievement in raising such a fantastic amount of money

The next Rotary Swimarathon will take place on Sunday 25th February 2018, and once again money will be raised for Local projects as well as the worldwide eradication of Suffering and Poverty.
