We've taken to the water for Charity

6th March 2014

Dunkley's team made up of Jane Dixon, James Dixon, Tom Bull and Clare King, completed the annual Thornbury Rotary Swimarathon on Friday 28 February 2014 to raise funds for Alzheimer's Society, Avon Riding Centre and other local charities.

The team improved on last years total, managing 136 lengths in an hour!

Adrian Dennis, Chairman of Community Events for Rotary Club of Thornbury wrote:

"The Swimarathon this year was hugely successful.  Over the 3 evenings we received sponsorship pledges amounting to exactly £12,000.  Somebody generously pledged £68 after the last session on Sunday to reach this big round figure!  We anticipate that the sum will rise significantly once we have received all the donations, plus some business sponsorship and gift-aiding.

On behalf of Rotary, please thank your team swimmers and sponsors for the support they have given to this event.

Congratulations on a great effort!  Hope you enjoyed the event!"
