Ashton Park students were once again out in force to show off their aquatic skills at the Portishead Lido. The sun broke through as they entered the pool for their 30 minutes of endurance swimming in the 33m outdoor pool. This annual event held on the longest day of the year broke the previous fund-raising records with all the proceeds going towards the Raj Soni legacy Trust http://rajksoni.org.uk/.
The 13 Ashton Park students swam over 18km between then and raised an amazing £620. With school and community groups visiting throughout the day, the final total is likely to reach £10,000. Well done to Logan, Luka, Will, Oliver, Isabel, Lily, Elsie, Lucy, Ethan, Hugh, Eve, Kitty, Sophia and of course Mrs Scroggs.
