Crowborough residents came out in force over the weekend to raise money locally for Sport Relief.
Over 20 swimming took part in the Swimathon at Crowborough Leisure Centre on Saturday, with both adults and children joining-in to swim either 1.5, 2.5K or the full 5km distance.
Michaela Rouy, Freedom Leisure Centre Manager said:
Our Swimathon event went very well with 23 swimmers taking part. Among them, they swam over over 40 miles. Even some very young children swam with one young boy of eight making a valiant effort to complete 40 lengths in a bid to keep up with his older siblings. It was a huge distance for him but he kept at it and all credit to him for his achievement.
Staff at Harris and Hoole also did their bit on Saturday to raise money for Sport Relief. With Isenhurst Health Club setting-up an exercise bike in the coffee shop, they pedaled away and raised over £500 from generous customers.
Then on Sunday, people took to the running track at Goldsmiths Playing Fields to participate in the Wealden Mile to raise money for Sports Relief charities.
The Wealden Sports Relief Mile event saw runners hop, skip, walk and run the 1, 3 and 6 mile routes, with many people running in fancy dress.
Throughout the weekend, Freedom Leisure’s Mascot, Jim Trainer, was on hand to help spur people on.
