Making a big splash with Rotary
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.
