Slough Swimmers Raise Money For Alzheimer's UK

Slough Swimmers Raise Money For Alzheimer's UK
13th August 2015

A group of swimmers took part in the Swimfit challenge at Langley Leisure Centre to raise money for Alzheimer's UK.

The event was organised by Tracey Hughes and saw the team take part in a staggering 256 lengths of the 25-metre pool. Over £1,500 was raised in sponsorship of the swimmers: Angie Treadwell, Romana Wolstenholme, Anita Madahar, Rishi Sidhu, Donna Hagan and Louise Flisher.

According to the Slough Express, James Flisher, swim school manager at Langley Leisure Centre, said: “They’ve taken three or four months of hard training to do this. They normally do around 80 to 100 lengths in a session. They really pushed the limit.”

This money will be much valued by the charity, who will be using the cash to further support their advice, health and social care schemes.
