Over the years Leonie took part in many sponsored swimming events to help raise funds for swimming either as an organizer, participant, helper and cake baker. Leonie has taken part in the Island Games as a swimmer and Team Manager many times. The sponsored Swim took place on 27th December 2018 9.30am- 3.00pm at the Southern Swimming Pool in Castletown. which saw 103 swimmers taking part.
The sponsored Swim has raised funds for the swimmers attending the 2019 Island Games in Gibraltar which will support them financially and will also help towards other events, education or training costs on their journey to the Island Games.
Leonie loved baking so we got the non swimmers to make and buy cakes and the original raffle ladies came to support the event. The event was very special bringing the swimming community and Leonies family together for a cause close to Leonies heart.
