Synchro mums Alex and Grace today swam the Great North Swim in the Lake District for charity. Alex is fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease Association and anyone wishing to sponsor her can do so on her JustGiving page. Grace is also fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support and CoPA as well! Donations can be made in person to Chris Rushton or Grace and will be passed on to CoPA and Macmillan.
Both ladies finished in style! Many congratulations from team CoPA!
