Swimathon 2014

On Sunday 12th October 2014 the Burnham Lions supported the Burnham Youth Club in entering a team for the annual Windsor Lions Swimathon at the Windsor Leisure pool.

We had a team of 7 swimming double lengths of the 25m pool in a 50 minute time limit. We managed 44 within the time and were sponsored for each raising over 400.
