Lifeguards at Jubilee Park in Woodhall Spa take part in 100-mile challenge
SWIMMING one mile can be considered a lot for most people but a team from Jubilee Park swam 100 miles between them.
Lifeguards at Jubilee Park swimming pool in Woodhall Spa took part in the challenge to raise funds for The Friends of Jubilee Park who help fund projects at the tourist attraction.
The 100 miles – equivalent to 4,952 lengths, took the swimmers around nine hours to complete.
Joe Stanhope, Jubilee Park manager, who was one of the swimmers said: “We all swam different amounts and actually the weakest swimmers did a lot extra for us which helped complete the challenge. We already have £350 raised and we hope the final amount will be around £400.”
