Charity Swimathon In Dorchester
9:06am 13th October 2012
Get your swimming hats on; Dorchester's new multimillion pound sport centre is hosting a swimming challenge this weekend (13th & 14th October 2012).
It's the Dorchester and District Lions Club annual swimathon.
Dozens of teams are taking part and will swim as many lengths as they can in 55 minutes today and tomorrow.
Teams of up to six can make the splash.
Inspired by the Paralympics, this year all funds raised will go toward helping people with disabilities in the local area.
If you feel up to the challenge, you can pick up an entry form from the Thomas Hardye Leisure Centre, the Dorchester Tourist Information Office or the Lions website at lionsdorchester.org.uk
