Ladybridge Leisure Centre are proud to work with some fantastic companies providing quality sports provision. We recently hosted a Swimathon event to support AquaStars, one of our swimming companies who provide lessons for children aged 3 and upwards and ladies only lessons.
“As a community focused Swim Academy we always try to find extra fun activities that children can take part in alongside swimming lessons.
At Christmas time we collect toys to donate to a charity called Mission Christmas, in the summer we attend open water SwimSafe events, and most recently we took part in the Swimathon for Marie Curie Cancer Research.
The Swimathon event was brought to our attention by one of our customers who takes part in it each year. It involves choosing a distance to swim (anything from 400m to 1.5k!) then setting up a Just Giving page so friends and family can sponsor and donate as much as they like.
Chances are we have all known someone with cancer, whether that be a friend or family member. We all pray for a cure, advances in treatment and better survival rates. So, when the time comes, we like to think we can help and contribute to the cost of cancer research and that’s why we chose to take part in Swimathon.
Combined, our fabulous customers and swimming teachers have raised over £1,000 for this amazing charity and we could not be more proud!”
