Polmont Rotary Club Swimarathon, of 2016, was very busy with 150 swimmers organised into 30 teams all swimming to help Radio Forth´s Cash For Kids appeal.

Provost Pat Reid opened proceedings the swimmers were drawn from Schools and local businesses. The Rotary District Governor Andrew Ireland, a member of Polmont club, along with his wife Jacquie also participated. A total of 3730 lengths, 93,250 metres or 58 miles, was achieved in the time allowed.

The winning team for 2016 was SP Energy who completed 203 lengths between them, with Denny High School team in second place with 200 lengths.

Radio Forth DJ Mark Martin did a great job as announcer and Emma Kempt, organiser for Cash for Kids assisted.

We raised £8500 last year and we hope to equal or better that this year. All the money raised will go to supporting sick, disabled and disadvantaged youngsters aged 18 and under in the Falkirk area.

“Thanks to all the swimmers who took part, all the spectators who came along to provide vocal support, our corporate sponsor Macdonald Inchyra Hotel and Spa, Falkirk Community Trust and everyone who gave sponsorship.”
