Training and fundraising takes off
We called ourselves Swim Fanatics and set up our Virgin Money Giving page
. The team began training. Quick progression is possible in swimming and they found they were able to regularly increase their distances. This helped team morale, attitude and confidence-building for the event. This confidence also encouraged them to put more effort into looking for sponsorship. After a slow start the £2000 target was looking possible after all! Leading up to the day team members were able to finalise their distances and give a rough idea of expected time. The children in the team would be swimming between 500-1,000 metres.
