Presentation Evening 2019

The presentations of trophies to winning teams and cheques to the three charities took place on Friday 26th April at Cheddon Fitzpaine Memorial Hall.  Swimathon Co-ordinator, Christine Briggs, welcomed all winning team members and friends and charity representatives. She announced the total raised this year was £19,234.15. However, there was prolonged applause when Christine mentioned that over its 31 year history the grand total raised by the Swimathon is just over £650,520!

The Taunton Deputy Mayor, Francesca Smith, presented the trophies to the winning team members.  Among these were our own Soroptimist Swans as the team who raised the most sponsorship money – £951.  The Deputy Mayor also presented the cheques to each of the charity representatives.
