Stokesley swimmers have raised £520 for charity.

Regulars at the towns Wednesday morning adult swimming lessons took to the water swimming six and a half miles between them in just one hour to raise money for the Alzheimer’s society.

 “I feel this is a great achievement as many swimmers don’t realise how far they can swim until they do something like this,” said Swimming Coach, Ann Coates who organised the event.  “It was great to see all our swimmers taking part including our beginners who managed 10 metres right through to our advanced swimmers.”

Adult swimming lessons for beginners and people wanting to improve their stroke take place every Monday from 8 – 9pm and Wednesday from 10.30 – 11.30am.
