Back in April, a bunch of Beccles swimmers, young, old and older!… chose to either swam for 1 hour continuously, or for the crazy..7 hours straight!!! All to raise £1,000 to enable the Club to purchase 1 of 5 Olympic style starting blocks required to take our swimmers to the next level.
The under 14’s could swim for a continuous hour, with the over 14’s also having the option to swim for 6hrs 55mins!! This is the quickest time for a cross channel swim.
Lawrence Lowman, Callum Thurston-Woolnough, Nina Howell, Lizzie Byrne completed this distance, with Ross Barnshaw completing over half, and not forgetting Dalton Yallop who completed 4 hours, after having already completed 2hrs training at Norwich.
So a massive thanks to all that took part, the sponsors, and the parents that remained on poolside for the duration.
