Swimming and smiling: Elsie completes her marathon swim in fine style - and raises £875

 

Ten year-old Elsie Monro aimed to swim one hundred lengths of the Marlborough Leisure Centre pool to raise money for research into multiple sclerosis - from which her mother Charlie suffers.



As marlborough.news reported last week, Elsie wanted to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society which supports sufferers from this misunderstood disease - and also funds research into possible cures.

She completed her marathon swim fine style - all 2,500 metres of it.  As Charlie Monro put it: "She swam 100 lengths successfully - in fact phenomenally well.   She did it in one hour and 15 minutes and has raised over £875 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. So proud!"

Her original target had been to raise £450 - and her Just Giving page is still open for donations.
