Here is Laura’s write-up of the event. Thanks for organising it Laura!
On Sunday 9th April Team Cally Masters 1 and 2 descended on the pool for a Swimathon organised for Marie Curie. No, I did not come up with the names, I obviously would have named us Team Sparkle Pants and Team Bubble Masters.
It didn’t start off too well: Lorenzo confessed to only having been awake for an hour (and there was some suspicion of a hangover) and Bronwyn went to the wrong pool.
Luckily Sue was on time, changed and ready to swim, Bronwyn found the right pool and Lorenzo pulled a speedy swim out of the bag. Abigail even brought her daughter (hello mini Abigail!!), and Csaba had a ball of a time overtaking everyone and decidedly not wearing the bright pink cap I chose as our team colour (sparkle pants!) Sue was so dedicated that it was difficult to make her stop by the end and she swam two extra lengths.
All in all, it was a really lovely way to spend an afternoon. Thanks to all who turned up to swim for such a good cause, and hopefully see you all there again next year!
