Pupils turn blue to raise funds for swimming charity
E YORKS: Students and staff in Goole will be turning blue this month to raise money for charity.
Goole High School has organised a non-uniform day on Friday, March 30, when pupils and staff will pay £1 to come dressed in something blue, or to wear their beach clothes.
The event will raise funds for the Goole Splashers Disabled Swimming Club.
Based at Goole Leisure Centre, the club has been running for more than 30 years and gives disabled children and adults the chance to enjoy swimming in a safe and friendly environment.
The club relies on fundraising to help pay for sessions and new pool equipment.
Club secretary Val Londgen said: "We are extremely grateful to students and staff at Goole High School for choosing to raise vital funds for the Goole Splashers.
"We anticipate a struggle in the future just to pay our bills as our funding has had to be reduced, so any funds raised really are appreciated."
Funds will help with swimming aids and transport to events.
Mrs Longden said: "We don't want our children to miss out on events like this, so funding is vital."
