As part of the events management module on their course, Joseph Mather, Ben Casey, Jake Parr and Armando Brouver have been tasked with organising and delivering an event.
Joseph explains: “To successfully complete the swimathon, each participant must do 22 lengths at a local swimming venue on Saturday, 14 April. We have chosen North City Family and Fitness Centre in Harpurhey as our venue.
“We chose the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund to raise money for as we feel it is close to the hearts of many mancunians, including ourselves, and we want to make a difference to those affected by the bomb.”
A £5 deposit secures a place on the fundraising team and this can be done via a dedicated web page.
To sponsor the swimmers, you can visit their justgiving webpage.
The full address for the event is:
North City Family and Fitness Centre
Upper Conran Street,
