The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - ROTARYCORNER - By Janet Cooke - email: janet.4.cooke@bt­in­ter­net.com

Swim­ming is one of the best ways to keep fit and Ro­taryswim Peter­bor­ough is open to ev­ery­one. The event of­fers an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal peo­ple of all ages, young or not so young, to get in the wa­ter and swim.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion need not be com­pet­i­tive, it can be fun for all the fam­ily.

Many teams, schools, clubs and char­i­ties need to raise funds for their own projects.

Here is an event that is for all ages, all abil­i­ties.

You can swim just a sin­gle length, or tackle over 100 lengths, to raise money for your own good cause whilst help­ing Ro­tary to help oth­ers.

It is the only char­ity swim in Peter­bor­ough.

There is no en­try fee. All par­tic­i­pants re­ceive a medal, pho­to­graph and cer­tifi­cate.

Ro­taryswim is or­gan­ised by Wer­ring­ton Ro­tary. Swim- mers are asked to raise spon­sor­ship.

Half of the money raised will go to the swim­mer’s own char­ity and has the ben­e­fit of be­ing sub­ject to Gift Aid.

The re­main­der will be re­tained by the Ro­tary Club to as­sist them fund their worth­while projects.

En­trants can swim as in­di­vid­u­als or as a team, for 25 to 55 min­utes. Last year Jonathan, who has been se­verely dis­abled since birth, was as­sisted to swim not just for 25 but for a full 55 min­utes.

Peter­bor­ough Special Olympics and the Sal­va­tion Army were amongst the groups who pro­vided teams of all ages.

Or­gan­is­ers have al­ready in­vited the Mayor John Fox to en­ter a team for his char­i­ties.

This year, hire of the pool has been spon­sored by Con­vert Train­ing and Nene Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment Ser­vices.

RO­TARYSWIM will be held on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 29th at Jack Hunt Pool, Brad­well Road, Nether­ton, Peter­bor­ough between 9.00 and 13.00.

In­for­ma­tion and En­try Forms can be ob­tained from Martin Nash.

Spon­sor­ship forms will be is­sued on re­ceipt of en­try to the swim.
