Thank you to Cheltenham running club Almost Athletes for kindly donating a £500 cheque to support our annual Swim for Safety event this year.
The money has gone towards buying a pair of swimming goggles for each pupil who took part in the event, and are theirs to use and keep – as a gift from Heidi’s Heroes for taking part.
Our Swim for Safety event is a week-long, intensive swimming course and this year more than 160 pupils took part from primary schools across Cheltenham and Tewkesbury.
The goggles were provided by Gloucester-based Sofab Sports, a Community Interest Company.
