Residents, staff and Wellness Spa members at the Richmond Letcombe Regis Retirement Village have raised in excess of £400 in aid of Maggie’s Centre, Oxford. Swimmers were aiming to swim 100 lengths in one hour, but with plenty of willing participants, they completed the task in just half the time. Swimmers of all abilities and ages, from 22 to 81, took part in the relay and other residents cheered them on from the poolside. Following the swim, everyone gathered in the Bar to enjoy specially created Swimathon themed cocktails - including The Beached Whale, Life Saver and Sink or Swim.
Maggie's Cancer Care Centre, Oxford, is the charity selected by residents at Richmond Letcombe Regis as their charity for 2012 and the Swimathon was the first of many fundraising events planned.
