A sponsored Assisted Swimathon made a splash for charities at Newport Pagnell's Middleton Pool on Saturday.

The event was organised by the Assisted Swim Club and is a prelude to the annual Rotary Club Swimathon.

The Rotary Club of Milton Keynes organises a Swimathon each year and, since its inception in 1994, the event has raised more than half a million Pounds.

The 2019 Swimathon committee will be held on Saturday March 9 at Stantonbury Leisure Centre, where teams of up to six swimmers will swim on a relay basis for 55 minutes.

No special swimming ability is needed but everyone taking part must be able to swim a full 33 metre length pool totally unaided. Children of any age are welcome but they must have parental permission. Everyone taking part is encouraged to seek sponsorship for their team.
