BWA students raise money for local hospice in the ‘Swim for Cransley Challenge’
Well done to Brooke Weston Academy students James Annable, Samuel Ward and Archie Robertson-Smith, who were part of two teams that were sponsored to swim as many lengths of Kettering swimming pool as possible in an hour.
One team was made up of swimmers from the Club's Senior Silver squad, including Senior Team Captain Archie from Year 11. The other team comprised swimmers from the Club's Junior Bronze squad including Sam and James, from Years 8 and 7 respectively. Each team competed in a six person relay.
The Silver team completed 205 lengths whilst the Bronze team swam 201 lengths in an hour, taking, on average, less than 18 seconds per length! The teams have currently raised around £1,800 for Cransley Hospice with money still coming in. Well done James, Samuel and Archie!
