RTSC’s fundraising officer Nicola O’Connor said “Our inaugural Swimathon has been a massive success and we thank all swimmers and sponsors for their commitment and generosity. A special thank you must go to those companies that supported our event, without whom our achievement of raising so much money would have been impossible. Thank you to Havering Beauty Academy Hornchurch, Trophyland Hornchurch, Mayhem Events Abridge and Sapphire Leisure Centre. Finally, a big thank you to my friend and fellow committee member Hannah Rooney for all you hard work.”
