At our meeting on 11 April, 4 cheques were presented on behalf of the club. Three cheques were proceeds from our recent swimathon held in March, 50 percent of which went to support Carnforth Swimming Pool and the other 50 per cent to a charity nominated by the sponsored swimmer. Cheques were presented on behalf of the Salvation Army; St Barnabas Church in Morecambe and St John’s Hospice in Lancaster.
Ben Taylor who was unfortunately not able to be present swam a total of 500 lengths (6 miles) to raise funds for Leukaemia Research on behalf of his son, Ted. Just over £1,300 was raised to support Carnforth Swimming Pool.
The club also presented a cheque in the sum of £600 to Archbishop Walton Primary School to assist with purchase of computer equipment.
