Weʼve raised £120 to Support four local projects by doing the Rotary Club Swimathon
- Freeman's Quay Leisure Centre, Durham
- Funded on Saturday, 3rd December 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We (me and Thomas) are part of team of four swimming as many sponsored lengths as we can in 30 minutes!
The Swimathon will raise money for three local charities: Down’s Syndrome North East; The Cheesy Waffles Youth Project, and; Veterans at Ease.
Each team can also name their own project to benefit from funds raised - we've chosen Neville's Cross Primary School's Appeal to help pay for a multi-use, all-weather games pitch for their playing field. They need £60,000 (current total is c.£15,000) - it will really widen the range of sports the school can teach and avoid current flooding problems on the school fields.

Don't forget to let us know who does more lengths. There has to be healthy competition. Best of luck to you both
