Huge splash boosts charity

TWENTY teams donned their swimming caps, goggles and trunks to help give a massive boost to charity on Saturday.

Fleetwood and Cleveleys Lions hailed their annual Swimarathon event at the town’s YMCA leisure pool as a huge success, with more than £4,600 pledged by sponsors.

Stuart Gratrix, one of the key organisers, told the Weekly News: “We had more than 120 swimmers taking part, each supported by 15 sponsors, which means that around 1,800 people were involved, in one way or other.”

Money raised will support charity Help the Heroes.
