Several of our more energetic members took part in a swim-marathon, organised by a neighbouring Lions Club in Maidenhead. On a cold day in January they braved the waters at the Magnet Liesure Centre and raised 348.00.

The swimarathon is run by the Maidenhead Lions Club as their main fund raising event and raised over 17,000 last year. Teams consisted of 6 - 8 swimmers who try to achieve as many laps as possible within 55 minutes.

The Reading Lions team completed 63 laps of 50 meters each and raised 348.00.The Lions Club of Reading team consisted of Lion Mike Holloway, Lion President Eric Warner, Lion Suzanne Dore,  Lion John Mack, Robert S Smith (Lion John's Grandson) and Tim Guttridge (a good friend of our Club). Lion Koula Mack, daughter Jenny and Lion Graham Dore were the lap counters.
 
 Well done and congratulations to everyone who took part.
