Would any swimmers like to take part in the Rotary Club’s Swimathon taking place this Saturday (18th Oct) at Hartsdown? The Rotary Club is able to take a couple of more teams. You need a team of 6 swimmers. The team takes turns to swim for a session of 55 minutes. Available slots are on Saturday afternoon. You will need to get some sponsors in advance. Appreciate its very short notice! Your sponsorship money will go 50% to Rotary Club Sponsored Charities (Oasis Domestic Abuse, Scoliosis, Eradication of Polio, Margate Millenium Fund) and 50% to the Swim Club. There is a trophy for the team that swims the most lengths in the 55 minutes. If you would like to take part please email TSC_secretary@btinternet.com in advance for forms and further information.
