Strokes for Strokes

Wednesday 18 October 2023

On 1 October, Leigh Hunt A boarding house held CH’s first sponsored charity swim in continued support of the Stroke Association.

The girls’ goal was to swim the length of the English Channel – 34 km or around 1280 lengths in total. With as many swimming as possible, the hope was that everyone would swim 42 lengths in the afternoon. Most managed, and some of the more experienced swimmers pushed themselves to double and even treble that number. Even those unable to participate in the swimming helped, by supplying a constant flow of refreshments for those who needed breaks between lengths.

It was a tremendous team effort, with the girls surpassing their goal by 330 lengths to swim 40 km!
