Raising funds for CAFOD in the pool!

A big shout out to Sylvie Allen and her sons, Joe and Ben for a great fundraising effort for CAFOD!

Swimathon 12 Feb14 Swimathon 6 Feb14

Sylvie, accompanied Joe and Ben, raised over £400 for CAFOD in a “Swimathon” organised by the Rotary Club of Banbury Cherwell in February.  It was a sponsored event to raise money for  Rotary charities and the participants’ own charity and involved swimming for one hour continuously in Bloxham School baths during which time the CAFOD team covered 5.25 kilometres!

Great effort and thank you for supporting our work!
