Read all about the Fundraising Award from the 2010 Kellogg’s ASA Swimtastic Awards.

GOLD - Team Mia, Ryde, Isle of Wight

Mia Stillwell and five friends – Chloe Graves, Mollie Riley, Hannah Ainsworth, Jessica Scadden, Isla Hawkes – raised more than £500 after swimming 33 lengths between them in an hour as part of the Isle of Wight Lions Club Swimathon.

Under the name ‘Team Mia’, the group were raising money for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice and St Mary’s Children’s Hospital – an important cause for Mia because she was diagnosed with leukaemia just a week before her third birthday and is still undergoing treatment.

SILVER - Emilia Jones, 8-years old from Darlington, County Durham

Emilia completed a 2000m sponsored swim for the charity ‘Action for ME’ and raised more than £450 after her mum Lynne was diagnosed with the condition.

Emilia’s mum has tried to shield the effects of the condition from Emilia and her younger sibling but Emilia is keen to help out as much as possible.

BRONZE - Ryan John and Oliver Shopland, Crynant and Carmel, South Wales

Ryan had the idea to raise money for the Golden Grove Mansion Appeal, which aims to restore a Llandeilo mansion for the first Welsh convalescent home and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment centre, after overhearing a conversation his mum was having.

Teaming up with Oliver, the boys managed to raise more than £1,500 in sponsorship and swim five circuits of the Wales National Pool in Swansea – about 335m altogether.
