The ‘Longest Swim’ success!

Once again Ashton Park visited Portishead Lido to participate in this annual charity where event where participants see how many lengths they can swim of the 33m pool in thirty minutes. In blustery but dry conditions the team of six clocked up 293 lengths between them which amounts to 9,669 metres or just over six miles.
What is even more impressive is the £365 they raised for the Raj K Soni Legacy Fund which supports various charitable causes across the South West aimed at giving people under the age of 21 a range of musical and sporting opportunities to enrich their lives.
After their exertions there was just time for hot chocolate topped with marshmallows before heading back for afternoon lessons!
Well done to Eve, Alex, Owen, Sam and Mason.
