Swimmers make a splash thanks to P&O Ferries

Nearly 200 school children competed in the first Thanet Primary Schools Swimming Gala, sponsored by P&O Ferries.

The event, for youngsters aged between seven and eleven was held at Hartsdown Leisure Centre in Margate. The swimming gala was organised by Thanet Swim Club and featured a host of events including individual freestyle and medley relay races.

The P&O Ferries sports and social club funded trophies and medals for the winning swimmers at the gala, where the overall winner was Upton Primary School from Broadstairs. The company’s social club supports a selection of Kent charities and organisations via a local good causes fund.
