Take the plunge for char­ity chal­lenge

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

SWIM­MERS of all shapes and sizes, ages and abil­i­ties are in­vited to take part in an­other ex­cit­ing swimathon.

The Ro­tary Club of Mac­cles­field Cas­tle is or­gan­is­ing its next an­nual char­ity event on Sun­day, March 13.

It will be held at Mac­cles­field Leisure Cen­tre, with each team of four to six swim­ming lengths of the pool in a re­lay over 45 min­utes, with spon­sor­ship money di­vided be­tween the Ro­tary Club’s char­i­ties.

Alec John­ston, from the ro­tary club and who helps or­gan­ise the event, said: “Em­u­late last year’s en­thu­si­as­tic Fire Fish cadets team and cre­ate some team spirit, raise some funds for your group and Ro­tary char­i­ties and have a ‘whale of a time’ at the Mac­cles­field Cas­tle Ro­tary swimathon.

“Just four to six peo­ple can make a great splash and join with 50 other teams to make a dif­fer­ence in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“Last year teams swam for scouts, churches, hospices lo­cal and na­tional char­i­ties but all had a great day and a cer­tifi­cate.”
