Swimathon to help fund pool's refurbishment
1:10pm Friday 25th October 2013 in NW
A SWIMATHON hopes to raise the remainder of funds needed to refurbish The Pelican Centre’s changing rooms.
The centre is looking for volunteers to swim as far as they can alongside the Tyldesley centre’s staff and volunteers for the 24-hour swimming challenge on from 12pm on November 2.
The money raised will top-up a £50,000 Olympic Legacy funding grant the centre was awarded in August from Sport Endland’s Inspired Facilities fund.
Improvements will include new flooring, showers, washroom facilities, cubicles and lockers.
Entering the swimathon costs £5 but anyone who raises over £100 will be refunded their entry fee.
To contact the centre call 01942 882722 and sponsorship and entry forms are available from reception.
