A team of 27 pupils and 3 staff from Limavady Grammar School took part in a sponsored swim last Thursday at the Roe Valley Leisure Centre to raise funds for the school’s trip to Kenya in July.
The target was to swim 1360 lengths or 21 miles (the length of the English Channel). In fact, the team swam a massive 2350 lengths, exceeding the target by almost 25 km.
All proceeds from this event go towards the charitable work of the LGS team who will be going to Kenya this summer to work at Oloosuyian Girls Secondary School, as well as working on various community projects in the surrounding Kajiado area. Miss Michelle Doherty, who co-ordinated the event, commented, “This was an amazing team effort, with incredible hard work and determination from everyone who took part. Thank you so much to everyone involved.”
