Swimmers are invited to dive into a charity Swimathon this weekend.
Carnival Pool Leisure Centre in Wellington Road, Wokingham, and Loddon Valley Leisure Centre in Rushey Way, Lower Earley, are joining leisure centres around the country in holding a Swimathon from Friday, April 27, to Sunday, April 29.
The weekend will raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care and Sport Relief.
Tony Penge, contract manager at the leisure centres, said: “We all know that 2012 will be a very special year for sport in Britain and the swimathon will be a good way to get people raising money for two great charities.”
Participants swimming for Marie Curie Cancer Care can choose from 5k, 2.5k or Team 5k challenges and those opting to raise money for the ‘Big Splash Mile for Sport Relief’ can take part individually or as part of a team.
