Swimmers celebrate with a 50 mile swim
Whitburn-based Trojan ASC Swimming Club celebrated their 40th anniversary recently with a special 40 mile charity swim.
The challenge took place at the Xcite pool in Whitburn and club members not only reached their target - but kept going until they hit the 50 mile mark.
A total of £2492.50 in sponsorship was raised with funds raised going towards providing additional training for the coaching team as wells as new equipment, ensuring that the club has a stable and sustainable future as they aim to help local youngsters realise their potential within the sport.
Pictured holding the cheque is Amelie Liddell, who swims for the club’s Superfins squad, along with coach Carolyn Cairns and committee member Colin Matthews, who helped to organise the event.
