Chichester Lions Club Swimathon – We have a team raising money for CCSC!

As the Summer Sprint Challenge has been cancelled we have managed to get a late entry into the Chichester Lions Club Annual Swimathon at Westgate on Saturday 16th May.

A team of our swimmers; Laura Docherty, Olivia Davies, Jess Rayner Molly Rayner, Georgia Spink  and Olivia Spink and are going to take part in the  event to raise some money for the Club by asking for sponsorship. All money raised will be donated back to the Club by the Lions Club, the Lions Club will retain any Gift Aid.

They will swim  for 55  minutes in a relay – they are hoping to win the trophy for the most lengths swum by a Junior team in the allocated 55 minutes and raise as much money as possible for the club to enable the club to put on events like the Summer Sprint Challenge and other social events.

Come along and support them and sponsor them as well. Some members are ‘donating’ the £5 entry fee from the Summer Sprint Challenge!

Sponsorship Forms will be on the club desk on Friday 15th May  or contact one of the swimmers and any sponsorship will be very gratefully received.

Unfortunately the decision has been taken tonight to cancel the Summer Sprint Challenge on the 16th May 2015.

We have had to make this decision due to the very low numbers of entries, out of approximately 120 club swimmers we have only received 40 entries, we needed at least 80 entries at £5 each just to cover the costs of the pool hire.

The Club would like to try to re organise the event for later in the year possibly on a Friday evening but we will only be able to do this if enough swimmers want to take part.

We are very sorry to disappoint those swimmers that wanted to take part and achieve 50m times in a 25m pool.

Refunds  for those that have paid will be available from the Club Desk on Friday the 15th May 2015.
