Jersey Swimarathon 2021 raises £ 65,000 for charity

0

Almost £ 65,000 was raised thanks to this year’s Swimarathon in Jersey.

The challenge saw the teams swim lengths of the Quennevais swimming pool from Saturday July 3 to Wednesday July 7.

With fewer teams than any year in the past decade, the 283 participating teams swam 15,986 laps in total.

The five-day event finally took place after the cancellation of the 2020 event and this year’s event was moved from March to July.

Yesterday morning 64 girls from grades 2 to 6 at Helvetia House School took the eight lanes.

The money raised will be split between Brighter Futures, Brightly, Jersey Youth Trust, Teenage Cancer Trust and YouMatter – and the Jersey Lions charity account.
