Swimmers at Worsley ASC took part in the grand finale of their Aspire Swim Challenge last Friday evening.
For three weeks, the swimmers have contributed in many ways in order to raise awareness for people who suffer from spinal injuries.
On Friday 22nd November, 32 members of our club all swam one mile each (64 lengths of a standard size swimming pool), which was a successful, brilliant and inspiring finish to all the hard work and effort which has been shown over the last few weeks.
Swimmers of all abilities and ages up to 22 took part in the swim, and the time it took the individuals ranged between 23 – 61 minutes.
So far, we have raised £355 for the cause, which is a fantastic sum and we are so grateful to still be receiving even more donations. A huge thank you to Megan Morris-Garside who has managed to raise £185 on her own!!
For some of the swimmers, such as Morgan Evans and Samuel Lightfoot, this was the first time they have completed a 1 mile swim, and we are extremely proud of all the great efforts contributed.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the swimmers who took part, and also all the help we gained from volunteers who helped us count the many lengths the swimmers completed in total.
The deadline for any further donations wished to be made is Friday 9th November. Forms can be downloaded from the website or picked up from training sessions.
