Local groups and charities are set to receive a share of the money raised from the Buckingham Swimathon, at Buckingham’s Civic Day tomorrow, Saturday.

Ninety-five swimmers took to the water in the second Buckingham Swimathon in March, organised by Buckingham Rotary Club, raising a total of £8,000 for local and national charities. Donations will be handed out to local groups on Civic Day at the Old Gaol from 12.30pm.

Winning teams and individuals, including 10-year-old Sophie Holmes who raised the most sponsorship money in the children’s category, will receive certificates and prizes from Mayor of Buckingham Ruth Newell.
