Tanzania Team: Sponsored Swim across Lac Leman

George and Luca, two Year 11 students from La Chataigneraie, will swim across Lac Leman (5km), in June, to raise funds on behalf of the Tanzania Team. They have been training during the past months and hope to raise as much as possible. All the money raised will be donated to the NGOs below. They are seeking sponsorship from the whole community. We hope you will support them by visiting their gofundme page.
