Thame Swimathon public appeal for 10 teams

Rotary Club of Thame & District are appealing to the public to come up with teams to attend the 8th edition of Thame Swimathon, the now traditional fun and fundraising event to be held at Thame Leisure Centre on Sunday 1st March between 11 am and 3 pm.

There are about 10 spaces left for teams of 4 to 6 during the 11:00, 12:00 and 14:00 time slot.

Marius Ciortan, chairman of the Thame Swimathon steering group said: “Thame Swimathon is a wonderful event for families, school friends, work colleagues to raise funds for charity, swim for 1 hour and have fun. To enter is easy as 1-2-3: get a
team of 4-6 together, download the Team Entry Form from www.thame.rotary1090.org , fill in the form and then email it to thame.swimathon@btintenet.com

The organisers hope that all swimming slots will be booked before the end of the schools’ half term holidays due to start on the 14th February.

All participants will receive medals awarded by Ann Midwinter, Mayor of Thame, or by Peter Allen, President of the Rotary Club of Thame & District.

Teams have the option to allocate 50% of their money raised towards the charity of choice or 100% towards Rotary’s charities. In both cases all monies will be collected by Rotary Club of Thame & District which will apply for Gift Aid as appropriate. Once this process is completed, Rotary Club of Thame & District will make a donation towards the charity of team’s choice, should this option be taken.

Rotary Club Thame & District main charities supported during 2019-2020 are Thame Young Carers, Red Kite Family Centre Thame & Chinnor, and The Maple Tree Children’s Centre Wheatley.

The event is possible due to generous local sponsors who kindly covered the swimming pool hiring costs: Thame Leisure Centre and Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust. Aston Hearing Thame kindly supported the event with the cost of producing the medals.

Volunteers from Thame Inner Wheel, Wheatley Park Interact Club and Phoenix Community Club will be supporting Thame and District Rotarians with the counting of lengths swum by teams.

5 teams for Barley Hill School of Thame will participate at Thame Swimathon raising funds for Barley Hill School PTFA – as they did in the past 3 years. Thame Swimathon is now one of the main fundraisers for this parents-teachers association.

Rapid 6 of John Hampden School Thame, Wheatley Park Interact Club and Dippers & Divers will participate again this year. A team from the newly created Phoenix Community Club will be welcomed to attend.

The teams will appreciate any support via online donations. The Virgin Money Giving links will be available onto the Thame Swimathon page of the Rotary Club of Thame & District’s website www.thame.rotary1090.org and on Facebook via www.facebook.com/thamerotary
