A mile in pool gives res­i­dents buf­fet treat

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A 12-year-old girl has proved there is such a thing as a free lunch.

Gen­er­ous Me­gan Cham­pion un­der­took a one-mile spon­sored swim in the pool of the Stour Cen­tre in Ash­ford to raise enough money to treat the res­i­dents of Loudon Court, in God­in­ton Park, Ash­ford to a buf­fet.

The Wye School pupil’s swim raised £68 in to­tal.

Dad Nigel Cham­pion said: “Hav­ing been a pupil at God­in­ton Pri­mary School, Me­gan had pre­vi­ously vis­ited Loudon Court with her fel­low pupils.

She re­mem­bered how much the res­i­dents en­joyed the vis­its by the chil­dren and thought it would be good to go back to see them.”

As well as pro­vid­ing food, Me­gan also sang to the res­i­dents.

Mr Cham­pion added: “There is enough money left to hold another lunch, which it ex­pected to be held at the end of Au­gust.

“They have also in­vited Me­gan back at Christ­mas.”
