A swimming event which last year raised funds to buy a potentially lifesaving piece of kit for use by the community is returning to Lutterworth.
The Rotary Club-organised Swimfest is in its 12th year and will be held at Lutterworth Sports Centre on Saturday, November 14.
Rotarian Roger May, one of the organisers, said: “The headline charities for this year’s sponsored swim are both related to benefitting children.”
This year’s event is supporting the Leicester-based Wishes 4 Kids, which grants wishes for young people with life-limiting conditions.
The second charity is the Leicestershire Life Education Centres Trust which provides substance and alcohol abuse education for junior school children.
Over the past 11 years , Swimfests have raised more than £45,000 in a few hours of frantic swimming.
Last year enough money was raised to provide Lutterworth First Responders with a brand new defibrillator.
Entry forms are now available at the Sports Centre or online at www.lwrotary.uk.
