Round-Island swimmers raise £18,000 for heroes
MORE than £18,000 was raised for Holidays for Heroes Jersey as ex-servicemen – including a team of injured military personnel – and Island swimmers completed a round-Island relay swim.
Seven teams of six took part in the event, which started and ended at Elizabeth Castle breakwater on Tuesday.
A team from the Army won in a time of nine hours 20 minutes, while an RAF team finished just a minute-and-a-half behind.
All teams completed the race within 45 minutes of each other.
The team of injured servicemen – dubbed the Heroes team by organiser Charlie Gravett – finished in fifth place.
