Participants in the 2022 Skipton Swimarathon have been honoured at a special awards presentation at Beau Sejour.
The 5th Guernsey Scouts won the RG Falla Cup for most funds raised by an organisation for the event’s charitable beneficiary, Grow Ltd. Renee Cotterill won a special accolade for raising the most amount of cash as an individual.
Guilly’s Gang won the award attributed to ‘Families & Friends’ with Roseneath Dental Clinic winning for the best ‘Health’ team. The ‘Special Endeavour’ Award went to Dominique Legg from GDS.
Tracey Hutchins, Manager at Grow Ltd, said: “Grow are incredibly proud and grateful to the community of Guernsey. We would also like to give a massive thank you to Skipton, Round Table, Lions Club and everyone involved who helped to make this event happen. Thank you.”
Skipton Swimarathon Chairman, John Stuart, said: “It’s been another wonderful year for funds raised by the Skipton Swimarathon. The event never seems to lose its attraction with generations of local people taking part, and, for some, it is almost a family tradition to take part each year.
“I am delighted that our chosen beneficiary, Grow Ltd, has received such huge support from the general public in Guernsey which has resulted in our sensational fundraising. Thank you to everyone who took part.”
