Fantastic representation of Bassetlaw Scouts at Rotary Club of Retford Swimathon – there were teams from 1st Ordsall, 1st East Markham and Askham and 7th Retford as well as three teams from 4th Worksop (St John’s).
One Cub from 7th Retford was awarded a prize for effort, which was presented by the Town Mayor, Cllr Alan Chambers – well done!
Over £9,000 was raised by over 300 swimmers from various schools, clubs and businesses. 40% of this will go to support Retford Street Pastors and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. The remainder will go to various charities chosen by the individuals and teams that took part. Thanks to Brown & Co Estate Agents for sponsoring the event.
