Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY -

TEAMS of swim­mers are asked to sign up and make a splash for char­ity.

Or­gan­is­ers of the 16th An­nual Mac­cles­field Cas­tle Ro­tary Swimathon are again look­ing for teams from around the town to take part in the event which takes place in March.

The money raised will go to a va­ri­ety of char­i­ties.

Last year the money raised to­talled £10,000 for lo­cal and Ro­tary char­i­ties, in­clud­ing East Cheshire Hospice, Age UK, Just Drop In, Scouts and Bux­ton Moun­tain Res­cue.

Alec John­ston, from Mac­cles­field Cas­tle Ro­tary Club who helps or­gan­ise the swimathon, said: “We’d like to hear from groups who want to en­ter a team or two and make a splash for char­ity.

“The money goes to help lo­cal peo­ple at var­i­ous char­i­ties. Come along and have a whale of a time.”

Teams of four to six swim­mers are en­cour­aged to en­ter and swim for 45 min­utes at the event.
