Are You Ready for the Swindon Dolphin Challenge?


on MONDAY 28TH MAY 2007?

>> >>

My name is Liam Herbert, I am 13 years old and I swim for Swindon Dolphin in the Olympic Squad. Having read about swimmer Otto Putland’s ‘Challenge’ in the Aqua Zone Magazine, I decided to take up his challenge to swimmers to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Otto had heard about the plight of 13 year old swimmer, Laurie Engel, who had cancer and so decided to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust Hospital Units. More information on Otto’s Challenge and the Teenage Cancer Trust are available at and

My 17 year old brother, Luke was a swimmer with Swindon Dolphin until he became ill with cancer two years ago. He has also had support from the Teenage Cancer Trust. And so Swindon Dolphin Executive Committee agreed to support the Otto Challenge – to try to raise at least £1000 by 22nd September 2007. We have already raised £500 at the recent Wiltshire BAGCAT gala and received a marvellous donation of £2200 from Tigersharks ASC.

Can you take up the challenge and help us? We want to involve everyone in the club either through swimming or helping out. So our swimming challenge is:

As part of a team of 5, complete 5000m in the fastest time possible. This will be swum as a 50 X 100m freestyle relay, with swimmers continuously rotating through their team until each swimmer has completed 10 X 100m swims, thereby completing 5000m between them.

Full details of all the day’s fun activities will follow soon. This event is only for Swindon Dolphin swimmers and their families and is not open to the general public.

You can download the reply slip and the sponsorship form below. Replies can be emailed to Debbie Southern. S ponsorship forms can also be picked up at Milton Road at the sweet table.

If you can help on the day please let Debbie know:

Many thanks.
