Saffery Champness has once again been named the firm that raised the most amount of money at this year’s Skipton Swimarathon.

The firm entered two teams, made up of a mixture of 18 staff members and their children, for the 36th Skipton Swimarathon.

At the awards evening on 18 October 2012 Guernsey’s Bailiff, Richard Collas, presented the team with the RG Falla Cup for the most funds raised overall, as well as for the second year running, the Lloyds TSB Black Horse Cup for the most raised in the financial services category

The firm managed 132 laps raising an impressive £1,123.28.

Nick Batiste, team captain and director at Saffery Champness, said ‘Saffery Champness always likes to enter at least one team into the Swimarathon. We have fantastic support from everybody, both colleagues and friends, and family when it comes to sponsorship.”

“We are proud to be the recipient of these awards, as it is really is a team effort,” he said.

The main beneficiary of the funds raised by this year’s Swimarathon is the Guernsey Cardiac Action Group who is aiming to provide training for public access defibrillators as well as raise the awareness of heart disease among bailiwick.

Last year’s mammoth total of £41,000 has already seen affect with Young People Guernsey opening The Hub and the new extreme sports park at the Beau Sejour Leisure centre which is set to open in March 2013.
