Halstead: Swimmers raise £1,600 with epic 12 hour challenge
3:00pm Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
Young swimmers swam all the way to Dover...in a Halstead swimming pool.
Some 35 members of Halstead Swimming Club, along with 15 parents and coaches, took part in the club’s swimathon at Halstead Leisure Centre as it sought to boost its funds and raise cash for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH).
They completed 8,004 lengths between them in 12 hours - the equivalent of the 122.3miles to Dover.
Altogether, the event raised more than £1,600, with 25 per cent to be donated to EACH.
