Members of Rykneld Swimming Club have raised in excess of £600 for the Marie Curie Cancer Care fund. Club competitors took part in the event which was dubbed the world’s biggest fundraising swim and saw almost 20,000 swimmers take part at over 580 pools across the nation.

At Sharley Park pool, the Rykneld swimmers staged a five-kilometre team challenge which required 200 lengths to be swum. The event was brought home by Kelsie Geary in 29 minutes and 24 seconds.
