On Saturday 27th April Debbie Lucas-Georgiou, Jayne Kavanagh, Tara Lynn Poole, Jelena Baburina and Helen Crane took part in the national Swimathon in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care. This happened at pools all over the country that weekend but our chosen pool was in Highbury, north London.
The UCLMS team took turns to swim 1.5k altogether and completed this in a fantastic time of 38 minutes and 27 seconds! This ranked Team UCLMS 105 out of 524 nationally so is a great achievement as well as raising a whopping £315 for Marie Curie. The Team would like to thank everyone who sponsored them – every penny is much appreciated!
It was a great atmosphere at the pool, with other teams taking part at the same time, and cheering everyone on was our very own UCLMS rent-a-crowd. For more ingenious photos of the day please see our Flickr page.
Well done also to Erica Harris, who swam 5k solo in front crawl at Hackney Lido on 29th April! Erica finished in the spectacular time of 2 hours and 6 minutes. She raised an amazing £605 for Marie Curie and would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored her.
