Here are a couple of dates to note down for July. On the 2nd we will be getting together for a summer BBQ at Pratts Bottom Village Hall and on the 14th we will be hosting a quiz night at Badgers Mount Hall. More details to follow.
Swimathon, the world’s biggest fundraising swim is 30 years old next year! Swimathon began in 1986, the 1986 pilot was a London only initiative, organised by the Guild of London Bath Managers to encourage pools to get more people swimming. The launch of the annual event was in 1988; Swimathon has since seen almost 700,000 participants at over 1000 different pools across the UK, getting involved, swimming for the challenge and raising money for charity. The official charity of Swimathon 2017 is Marie Curie. The charity provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. It has been doing this work for over 65 years and last year alone cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. The 2017 event takes place over 3 days from 7th – 9th and Orpington Ojays swimmers will be taking part in the Swimathon on April 8th from 6pm at the Walnuts Leisure Centre. We obviously want to raise as much money as we can for such an important charity so we hope that lots of you will want to take part. There will be trophies for • Most money raised (boy and girl) • Most laps (boy and girl) Basically, collect sponsors on the form provided, swim as many laps as you can in one hour on the 8th then collect the sponsor money in. Simple! All monies need to be with Alice Bennett by April 30th 2017. Please sign up on the Orpington Ojays noticeboard at the Walnuts, print off the accompanying sponsor form and turn up and swim. A parent is needed to count the laps for each child so please make sure that they are either on poolside on in the gallery with a clear view. We look forward to seeing everyone on April 8th Photo: Laura Wright, sporting soprano and official anthem singer for the England rugby team, is proud to be supporting this year's Swimathon with Duncan Goodhew, Swimathon President and Olympic gold medallist swimmer
Saturday morning saw Team purple selling their raffle tickets at the CO-OP at the Crescent Orpington. The generous customers have boosted the fund by about £200 and as always our swimmers were smiley, polite and a credit to themselves and the club. Thank you to the Saunders family for organising; and a special thanks to Claire Norton, the manager and her team at the CO-OP. Claire not only allowed us to sell at the store, but also set up a great table right by the entrance so we could chat to everyone as they arrived. The Prize Pot is growing fast. Watch out on the notice board and here, for the new total soon.
