We had another great turn out for our festive swimathon, with 24 Christmassy Cubs in the pool and another two joining us for the party afterwards. Costumes ranged from Batman and Elvis, through Elves and Santas, to a Christmas Tree and a Tiger.

The Cubs swam widths of the pool for an hour and all of them just kept on going. Jasmine managed to complete and astounding 209 widths, with Cooba completing 178 and Luke 175. All of the Cubs did amazingly well and we were very proud of their efforts.

Once they'd changed out of the soggy outfits it was upstairs to the party room for a delicious party tea and some more fundraising, including a tombola, lucky lollies, guess the number of sweets in the jar, cake decorating and the sale of decorations that we'd been making at Hobbycraft.

The money raised will be going towards the coach for the Cubs' London trip in June next year.
