Swimarathon prizes awarded

Thursday 20 October 2022

Renee Cotterill and the 5th Guernsey Scouts won the prizes for most funds raised by an individual and an organisation respectively at this year's Skipton Swimarathon.

Participants were honoured at a special awards event at Beau Sejour last night.

All of the money raised was donated to the event's charitable beneficiary, GROW Ltd.

Other notable mentions include 'Guilly's Gang' which won the Family and Friends trophy and the Foresters Arms which won the Pubs&Clubs cup.

Various schools were named as winners in their categories including Notre Dame for the swimmers in the small pool aged under 6, and Melrose which raised the most money among the junior schools.

The Ladies College picked up prizes in both of the senior school fundraising categories, while St Sampson's High raised the most funds by an 'At Large' school event after hosting a Swimarathon session in their own pool.

Tracey Hutchins, Manager at GROW Ltd, said they are very grateful for all of the money raised.

“GROW are incredibly proud and grateful to the community of Guernsey. We would also like to give a massive thank you to Skipton, Round Table, Lions Club and everyone involved who helped to make this event happen. Thank you.” 

Skipton Swimarathon Chairman, John Stuart, echoed her comments in thanking everyone who had taken part or been involved.

“It’s been another wonderful year for funds raised by the Skipton Swimarathon. The event never seems to lose its attraction with generations of local people taking part, and, for some, it is almost a family tradition to take part each year. 

“I am delighted that our chosen beneficiary, GROW Ltd, has received such huge support from the general public in Guernsey which has resulted in our sensational fundraising. Thank you to everyone who took part.”
