Disability Swim Group Celebrate

Issued: August 19, 2019

Following their recent One Mile Swimming Challenge, the Disability Swim Group at Grimsby Leisure Centre today celebrated their achievement with an award ceremony, in which each of the group were presented with a medal. The Challenge, which took place back in May, saw the group club together to collectively swim one mile and raise an impressive £2700 to fund the purchase of two new water wheel chairs, and some new therapy and swimming equipment. 

Jessica Briggs, Swim Teacher, Lincs Inspire said: 

"The group did so well to complete the challenge and raise such an impressive amount in the process. It's been a collective effort and everyone has thoroughly deserved their medals and recognition."  

The Disability Swimming Group meet weekly at Grimsby Leisure Centre on Mondays between 9:30am and 11am. More details are included on our Activities and Events page or by calling the Leisure Centre on (01472) 323500.
