A Mile of Smiles

24th September at Kingsmead Leisure Centre
(7:00 to 9:20am and after 2:30pm)

Two members of staff have volunteered to swim a mile and to gain sponsorship from friends and relatives. Members of East Kent Strokes group will also swim both alongside and in their own local pools in the days on either side this swimming event.

We Need Volunteers

If you or a friend can swim a few lengths, then please register. Your swim can be at your local pool where you are familiar with the facilities and staff, or at a public session at the Kingsmead Leisure Centre in Canterbury.

It can be the full mile, or half, or even just a length – whatever is within your capacity

It can be on the 24th September, or during the week before or after.

If you swim regularly, then register with Geraldine and get sponsored

It you don’t swim regularly, then register with Geraldine and get sponsored – then start swimming!

About dw

I’m old. Well, I’m nearly 74. And I was half paralyzed by stroke in March 2005. So I sit around all day “Trying to find lots of things not to do”—as the song has it. I’ve spent a little time and money tracing the ancestors, and yes, I’ve got drunkards and prostitutes among them. So, it’s a fairly normal family really. see worsleytree.org for the gruesome details. As the Irish comedian used to say “Let your God go with you”
