The Rotary Club of Maidstone Riverside applied for a grant to fund the staging of the 2018 year’s Maidstone Swim Relay, which was held at Maidstone Leisure Centre on Sunday 25thNovember. This is a charity event which raises funds for both Children-in-Need and the participants chosen charity or activity. Teams of between 4 and 6 swimmers swam for 30 minutes to see how many lengths of the pool the team could achieve in that time. It was a great fun afternoon with teams coming from a wide range of organisations, such as schools, clubs and family teams. In the two previous years that the event has been held, with the support of the Maidstone Leisure Trust and the facilities kindly provided by Maidstone Leisure Centre, over £33,000 has been raised for the charities. In 2018 a record amount of over £13,500 was raised.
