Div I Has Swum the Channel!Links in this section
Once again the boys have both surprised and impressed me with their tenacity towards a challenge. I really thought that they were going to struggle to complete the required lengths,; however, they had finished by 11:20am and there was chat about swimming back!
I would like to thank all of the adults who chipped in, especially the early crew who were in the pool at 6:30am! Despite some of the boys not being especially strong swimmers, they all did their bit and clearly had a huge sense of achievement on completion. Most notable was Valentine Ballingal, who managed 170 lengths without really breaking a sweat.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone involved for their support and I am pleased to report that we have already reached 76% of our target for Cancer Research UK.
