The Lions Club of Windsor held its annual Big Splash! awards evening at Windsor Cricket Club on Friday to celebrate the success of its Swimathon fundraising event.
The event, which took place in May, saw swimmers take a plunge in the pool at Windsor Leisure Centre to raise money for their chosen charities.
And everyone’s hard work was rewarded on Friday as more than £7,500 was handed out to a host of charities and good causes.
Trophies were also handed out with the East Berkshire Downs Syndrome Group winning the best sponsored seniors award and Willow Hefferman winning the best sponsored junior.
Event organiser Lion Mike Sells said: “We had another excellent event doing what Windsor Lions do best – distributing much needed funds to local charities.”
