Swimarathon 2011

March 2011

Le Masurier entered a team in the Jersey Swimarathon for the very first time in March 2011, which was the 40th consecutive event since its start in 1972 and to date the Swimarathon has raised almost three million pounds for charity, most of which has been spent in the Island.

Through our sponsorship and after completing 52 laps the team managed to raise over £700 for the chosen local charities. Moneys from the Swimarathon and other fund-raisers have been used for building an indoor swimming pool for the handicapped, a day care centre for children, a day car centre for the elderly, establishing a hospital radio service and supporting many other local and international charities including major donations to Channel Islands Air Search which was founded by the Lions Club of Guernsey.

Our thanks goes out to all those who kindly sponsored the team.
