The Bluefin Open Water Swim Club completed a 12 hour ‘swimathon’ in aid of Calpe House, raising a total of £1,720.
Graham Olivero, a club member, explained why the club chose to raise money for Calpe House:
“Calpe House makes an already difficult situation more bearable…. We think it is a fantastic cause and anything we can do is what we are up for.”
He noted that all the members of Bluefin have benefited from Calpe House in some form over the years and that they are all “touched” by it in some way, adding “it really is a home away from home”.
Charles Marfe and Deborah Huxley accepted the cheque on behalf of the charity expressing their sincere thanks and gratitude on behalf of Calpe House.
