Forty-seven disabled children took part in the Panathlon Swimming Gala held at Lansbury Bridge School on Thursday 5th October 2017.

The event was open to low ability swimmers or non-swimmers to encourage their confidence and swimming ability in a fun competition which included raft races, treasure hunts and relay races.

The overall winners were Merefield School from Sefton who overcame Lansbury Bridge School (St Helens) by 5 points. Other schools who participated were Sandfield Park (Liverpool) and Bluebell Park School (Knowsley).

The event was funded by the Panathlon Challenge and supported by Greenbank Sports Academy staff and volunteers.

A huge thank you to Lansbury Bridge School for providing the pool and being so hospitable on the day.
