SAMUEL SWIMS RECORD LENGTHS FOR NOTTINGHAM SEA CADETS

Cadets from Nottingham Sea Cadets collectively swam in a charity swimathon on 15 March at Nottingham High School organised by the Rotary Club of Sherwood, and Cadet Samuel Mackay managed to swim an amazing 112 lengths.

The majority of the Cadets who took part swam around 50-70 lengths each but Samuel, who swims as a hobby as well as being part of the Sea Cadets, managed to break previous Sea Cadet records and even astound the organisers.

Samuel also managed to win a new swimming cap in the participants’ raffle, kindly donated to the event by Speedo.

The money raised from the event is used by the Rotary Club to go towards worthwhile causes, and a percentage of the sponsorship money is given back to the participants’ chosen charity, so Nottingham Sea Cadets will be using the money towards their trip to the WW1 Battlefields this October.
