Colfe’s Swim Squad raise money for Macmillan
Over 150 pupils from the Junior and Senior School took part in Colfe’s annual sponsored swim. The event was held over four sessions with a target of 3,000 lengths and £1,000 in donations.
The Swim Squad – including pupils from Year 3 upwards – easily surpassed this, swimming a total of 5,499 lengths and raising an incredible £2,688. The money raised includes a donation from the Leathersellers’ Company who kindly match-funded the event.
Each year the Swim Squad choose to donate money raised to different charities. This year it was decided amongst the swimmers that Macmillian Cancer Support – a charity that provides specialist healthcare, information and financial support to those affected by cancer – was the most deserving.
Master in Charge of Swimming Sarah Manzi said “I would like to thank everyone who swam and to those who donated to this worthy charity. As always, I am incredibly proud of our swimmers and the support they give to each other.”
