The first weekly swimming session for youngsters with special needs has been held thanks to funds raised from the annual Notts2Skeg charity bike ride.
Last year’s event donated £4,146.25 towards the fun swimming sessions at the Embassy Pool in Skegness. The money will subsidise the use of the pool at the leisure centre for use by the Sharing Minds Parent Support Group. The group supports families of children with special, complex or additional needs.
Organiser Emma Slack said: “These sessions are heavily discounted thanks to money raised by the Notts2Skeg Bike Ride 2013. A big thank you to Neil and Kevin and all the riders. We have been able to hire the pool so it is a lot quieter than normal and much more relaxing for everyone taking part.”
Sessions, £3, take place Sundays 4-5pm.

The Notts2Skeg Bike Ride was set up in memory of Ronald Green who passed away from cancer in 2001 by his son Neil and Kev Bryant.
Now in its 13th year, the next ride takes place on Saturday, July 12, and is raising cash for a Nottingham based brain tumour research charity.
