There’s something in the water- Swimathon raises money for Cancer Care
Swimmers from North Devon leisure centre and Ilfracombe swimming pool helped raise £35,000 in the Nationwide ‘Swimathon’ this April for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The funds raised will help people with terminal cancer and other illnesses get the nursing care they need.
The event has raised a total of £2.4 million to date, heading towards what could be a record breaking year.
Swimmers of all ages and abilities helped to raise the funds with individual distance and team challenges.
