Interact swim raises £500 for SHAK

Interact-Swim-for-Shak-bw-rEight members of the Interact Club of Coquet and Aln (Junior Rotary) each swam 50 lengths of Amble swimming pool to raise funds for the Northumberland Dog Charity SHAK.

The total distance added up to 11 kilometres and the young people raised in excess of £500.

Members of The Rotary Club of Amble and Warkworth sponsored the swimmers to the tune of £115 and the manager of the leisure complex added a further £20.  £300 of the total was raised from a collection outside Sainsbury’s which was added to the money donated through individual sponsorship.
