Western Suburbs Weekly - - Westernopinion -

CEIN­WEN Roberts (34), Wayne Mor­ris (44) and Ge­off Wil­son (50) want to raise $28,000 for the Kirk­bride Melanoma Cen­tre af­ter swim­ming 28km around Rot­tnest Is­land re­cently.

It is the first time the cir­cum- nav­i­ga­tion has been done.

Mrs Roberts, of Swan­bourne, said Scott Kirk­bride, who died from melanoma at age 27, was a fam­ily friend. “We swam to raise aware­ness and money for the Scott Kirk­bride Melanoma Cen- tre,” she said. “We cov­ered 28km in eight hours and 15 min­utes.”

Three boats and six pad­dlers, in­clud­ing Mrs Roberts’ hus­band Andy Roberts, sup­ported the trio.
