“We received such an incredible amount of support and generosity from local businesses and individuals as well as from our fantastic community of families and friends at the swimming school.
“It has been heartwarming and lots of fun too, we are hoping to raise the remaining £150 before the end of this year in order to have a cheque for £8,000 to split between the three charities.”
