Splash for a Good Cause
Friday 20 October 2017 started with a splash with St Christopher’s School hosting their 3rd Charity Swimming Gala. There were over 130 swimmers who took to the water and all entry fees were donated to The United World Schools. Parents also baked cakes and cookies for a bake sale, and all these proceeds were also added to the final collection.
Swimmers were allowed to compete in up to 4 events, in distances of 50m and 100m races. Some took on the challenge of butterfly and IM events, while others beat their personal best times in freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. Medals were awarded to 1st place swimmers in each age category.
The swim squad would like to thank all those who competed for this amazing cause. A special thanks goes to all the parents and students who gave up their time officiating, collecting money, baking cakes and cheering on the swimmers.
We are now proud to announce that with all your help we managed to raise a staggering figure of BD 1330.
