Make a big splash for cancer charity

KEEN swimmers are being encouraged to make a splash and take part in a fundraiser at Wath Leisure Centre.

As part of the nationwide Swimathon Weekend from April 27-29, residents are challenged to take part in 5k, 2.5k and Team 5k distance swims to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The swimathon is open to people of all ages and abilities.

For those who prefer to cheer on from the sidelines, they can still do their bit by sponsoring those taking part by logging onto swimathon.org

Volunteers are also needed to be a lap counter at Wath Leisure Centre, please email info@swimathon.org for further details.
