    Story

    This Christmas Alfie Francis has decided to become a fundraiser for Colchester Swimming Club and help raise funds that can go towards activities for all the swimmers in the club.

    On Christmas Day morning at 10am, Alfie and his Dad Michael, will take part in the Clacton On Sea, Seafront Swim. Whatever the weather and however cold it might be, they will join 100's of other crazy people to dive into the icy waters.

    "The Coaches and team at Colchester Swimming Club work so hard to train all of the swimmers and are always at the Pool, said Alfie, and I decided I want to give something back to the club for all their hard work"

    Alfie's dream is to swim at the Olympics in 2024 when he will be 19. He joined Colchester Swimming Club in October 2015 and is going from strength to strength.

    So please dig deep and donate as much or as little as you can and help all the youngsters at Colchester Swimming Club continue to get the fantastic support from the team of mainly volunteers that are helping them to stay fit and healthy and maybe help them on the way to their dreams of being a successful athlete.
