Sponsored swim for '558
« on: March 18, 2011, 12:48:53 PM »
A local supporter in Cheltenham has organised a team to take part in the local Swimarathon to raise money for the Vulcan to the Sky.  This is the 2nd year running that they have raised money for us and this year I have set up a justgiving page to help their fundraising:

http://www.justgiving.com/griffins-odd-bods/

The swim takes place next Saturday, 26th March. Could you consider donating a small amount to encourage them and help them meet the target?   :)  Apart from the organiser (who will swim a few lengths) the team are all local children. If anyone is local enough and a keen swimmer, there are also a couple of places still available to take the team up to its maximum of 10.  Our slot is 5:30-6:15pm and it is held at the Cheltenham College Pool. Please let me know if you are interested and I'll pass on the details.

Thank you, John, the total now ends in 5.58, which is great!  :)  And it will do until someone adds a strange amount, maybe something like 10.97? Maybe the total could become the battle of the Vulcans!   :lol:  (Husband reckons that's a bit of an obscure comment and I should add 'do the maths', but I trust you all - I'm not the weirdest person on here, am I?  :?  :? )

Another £5.58 (which is great - thanks very much  :D ) has blown any fancy messing with totals.  It reminds me that I was once a mathematician - so am much more at home with letters than numbers ...  ;)  :D

By the way, anyone want to recommend some of their favourite youtube clips and I'll add them onto the page ...

I've just updated the justgiving page to include a short report on the swimarathon and to include the off-line donations.  The total now stands at an amazing £690.78!  Thank you all for your support.  :D

If anyone else would like to make a donation, the page will be taking donations for a little longer http://www.justgiving.com/griffins-odd-bods/.  :)
