Gold Squad - Brownsea Island Challenge

Tom Dowden

Poole Swimming Club would like to say a huge thank you and well done to the Swimmers in Gold Squad who set themselves a challenge to swim 4 ½ miles in their Around Brownsea Island Challenge in their swim sessions.

The amazing squad not only completed this, but raised a huge amount of money too: £341.58 in total! 

With a portion of the money raised going to a local charity of their choice- Route to Roots, this was a fantastic achievement.

A big thank you must go to Coaches Maralyn and Katie for supporting the swimmers with this brilliant idea.

So over to the rest of the squads:

Do any of you swimmers have an idea of a distance you’d like to challenge yourself and your squad to complete, while raising money at the same time?

If so speak to your coaches and let's see where Poole Swimming Club can go next!
