Swimming for Foodshare
On Saturday 7 January, a small band of generous spirited, fun loving Sixth Formers represented Claires Court in the Lions Club annual swimarathon at the Magnet, Maidenhead. Year 12 were represented by Hattie Thomas, Tom May and Todd Muil and Year 13 were represented by Flora Gault, Sophie Corrigal, Laura Batten, Alexei Murphy, Chris Rayer and Toby Yates. Daisy Fowler, Mrs Burdett and Ms Renardson cheered them on as they completed a total of 117 laps (334 lengths).
The exact amount of money raised by the teams is still to be confirmed but as the photos show, they were supporting the Lions Club charities and Foodshare (Maidenhead). The various food items on the posters are all examples of items currently required by Foodshare for distribution to local people in need.
Mrs Burdett commented;
“Our swimmers really did Claires Court proud as their camaraderie, team spirit, generosity and determination were an absolute delight to behold. They were real stars.”
