‘The Longest Swim on the Longest Day’ ~ Midsummer's Day FRIDAY 21st June 2013
*** £20,000.00 raised ***
Thank you so much to everyone who took part in a totally brilliant day. The weather
was pretty good, Portishead pool was fantastic (and warm!) and there was an amazing
atmosphere all day and evening. Raj K Soni was absolutely there with us all in spirit,
and people said they were inspired by the day. 374 swimmers took part including children
from Gordano & Highdown schools, and together we swam 6,671 lengths, which is 139
miles. That is just over 6.5 Channel crossings!! Every length counted towards this
great achievement so everyone’s contribution made a difference. There was also some
pretty exciting swimming at the end of the day when Water Polo Teams (including former
Olympians) and Triathlon & Swim Clubs competed against each other, and we had friends
swimming their half hour slots around the world -
The money raised and pledged is much more than we had hoped for so thank you from our hearts to all those who gave so generously. We are still getting sponsor monies & donations in, so if you haven’t had chance to donate and would like to, please please do so! The direct link is on the Legacy Fund page.
The success of the day was down to so many people but huge thanks in particular go to Tom & Angie Williams, Paul & Gloria Lambert, Andy & Janet Booker, Bryan Stone, Ian Thompson,Toby Gritten, Alan & Carol Wood, and Andy & Barbara Thatcher and the Portishead Pool Trustees. Pencil the date in your diary for next year......!!
