In the swim for appeal

THEY raced up and down the pool trying to get as many laps in half an hour as they could in aid of raising funds for the Red Cross Tsunami Appeal.

About 30 Scots PGC students lined up along the blocks yesterday ready to jump in at 10.30am with teachers Mike Keevers, Nina Marshall and John Telfer all joining in the important cause.

The students have all been sponsored on how many laps they could achieve and the Southern Downs Regional Council donated the lanes of the pool.

Danny Lyons Sports, Dr Evan Ackermann, Ryanie for Tyres and Maydan Feedlot all supported the students’ quest to help ease the pain brought on by the tsunami disasters.

Scots PGC Year 12 student Max Ackermann swam 98 laps for the cause and said he was “buggered, but it was all worth the effort”.
