Teams of up to six swimmers took  part in our annual sponsored swim.  This annual event takes place at the Frome Leisure Centre pool and allows teams to raise money for their preferred charity or club.

The sponsorship money raised will be shared (50/50) between a charity of your choice or your own Club/School funds and Frome Lions Club Charitable Trust.  Our main charity for this event is CRY, cardiac Risk in the Young. Our donation will go to the local branch of CRY, The Julian Wort Memorial Fund, which supports the charity in the Frome area, & for example arranges heart screening of young people living in the locality.

A presentation took place in May where individual teams were presented with squelches in favour of their chosen charities.

It gave the club enormous pleasure to hand over our donation, which had been made up to £3000 to Shirley Wort who founded the Julian Wort Memorial fund.
