Two of our Retford lawyers will be taking to the water this weekend.
The annual charity event, which raises impressive sums for deserving causes every year, marks the third time that Charles has taken part, and Gareth’s second time.
Funds raised by Charles and Gareth will be split between Talkzone, the free and confidential counselling service for children and young people between 11 and 25 in Bassetlaw, and Medical Detection Dogs, which trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease, including cancer and other life-threatening conditions.
Charles said: “Since last year’s Swimathon I’ve been in the pool a number of times but this is usually with a six month old, so is best described as organised splashing. We’re really looking forward to doing our bit again this year and hope we can raise a good amount for two really worthwhile causes.”
