swimarathonThe Grantham Rotary Swimarathon is celebrating its 30th year, and welcomed schools, businesses, friends and families to swim as many lengths as possible in 55 minutes to raise funds for local causes. A record 270 teams took part and over 1,600 people signed up for the event which was showcased across three days back in February this year. The Swimarathon then held a special awards ceremony at St Wulfram’s Church on Thursday 27th June 2019.

GANF entered eight teams into the 2019 Swimarathon, with six teams from Ambergate Sports College and another two from Sandon School. A staff team from GANF also took part and combined with the pupils they swam over 800 lengths!

The schools were rewarded with a £500 cheque that will be used to support the refurbishment at Wyville Village Hall which includes the installation of a new wet room to ensure the neighbouring Forest School is fully inclusive for pupil wheelchair users.
