Lap-a-thon
Congratulation and thankyou to Hayley Gregory who raised $1,002 making her the winner with the most money raised – she will receive her iPod Shuffle in the coming week.

So far the club has received $3,000 but has more than 17 swimmers yet to return their monies. We are well on the way to our aim of $5,000 to purchase three new shades for our club.

Reminder for all swimmers who participated in the Lap-a-thon to please return their money and sponsorship forms to Wendy our club Treasurer ASAP. The club will be looking to purchase shades with this money and follow up on matched giving amounts.

Thankyou again to all swimmers who took part in the Lap-a-thon.
