Date: 20th Mar 2019 Author: Glen Militis

This year the 1st Jersey Sea Scout Group had the fantastic experience of participating in the annual Lions Club Swimarathon on 8th March. We put in 6 teams from Beavers, Cubs, Sea Scouts, Young Leaders and Leaders and everyone swam fantastically, the Leaders only beating the Girl Scouts by two with 65 laps! We also had the privilege of having the Island Commissioner in our Leaders team, so thank you Glen for swimming with our Group. We all had fun doing the Macarena and dancing to Mamma Mia songs! Overall, we raised £1,250.50 to help local charities which is amazing!
