Swimmers Make A Splash At Pennine Sponsored Fundraiser


We are very excited about the start of the Paralympics tonight and really caught the Olympics bug during the Rio games.

The Gold medal triumph of Adam Peaty in the pool was a particular highlight for us as Pennine recently sponsored the boy’s 100m butterfly race in a local swimming fundraiser.

The event took place at North Tyneside Swimming Club, an independent competitive club based at the Lakeside Centre, Killingworth and Hadrian Centre, Wallsend.

24 swimmers aged from 10-17 swam their hearts out in 6 different age groups, and the following were first to touch the finishing point:

10yr                       James Callender                              AJ Newcastle

11yr                       Patrick Speight                                 Gateshead & Whickham

12yr                       James Wood                                     Middlesbrough

13yr                       Caleb Lowery                                    AJ Newcastle

14yr                       Ben Gilchrist                                     Wear Valley

15&over               Lucas Lowery                                    AJ Newcastle 

Congratulations to the winners and all of those who took part.
