TOTAL RAISED SO FAR £5,400
A group of swimmers from Team Luton swimming club undertook a 24-hour continuous swim for charity in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust at Inspire, Luton Sports Village from 7.30pm on Thursday 11 December until 7.30pm the next day. Swimmers of all ages from the club swam in one-hour time slots throughout the 24 hours and were joined by Commonwealth silver-medallist and Team GB swimmer, Joe Roebuck. Also taking part in the event were swimmers from Hatfield, Hitchin and Putteridge swimming clubs, and the Transition Tri triathlon club.
Joe Roebuck took time out from the swimming to deliver an inspirational talk to Team Luton swimmers during their strength and conditioning session, and to sign items and have photographs taken with the swimmers. The final five minutes was swum by event organiser Abby Gee, Joe Roebuck and Will Rodger, applauded on poolside by nearly 200 swimmers, coaches and parents from Team Luton.
The swimmers were raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust because Will, who swam for Team Luton, was treated successfully in one of their specialist units last year. By raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust hopefully more young people will receive the same care and attention as Will.
