Top swimmer set for Isle pool

BRITISH record-holder Joe Roebuck will be presenting prizes when a sponsored swim takes place in Epworth next month.

Roebuck, a European and Commonwealth medalist and World Championship finalist, will present awards for the winning teams for the sponsored event on Sunday, November 20.

The swim is being organised by the Rotary Club of Epworth and Isle of Axholme and the Epworth Sharks, in aid of the World Swim Against Malaria and Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

Epworth Pool is hosting the event for free and a large number of teams are expected to register.

A committee representative said: “We’re thrilled that Joe has agreed to come and help with our fundraising efforts. It’ll be great to see him there and have one of the most succesful swimmers in the country supporting our event.”

There is still time for teams to register for the event. Logon to for an entry form before Monday, October 31.
