Bass Rock Swimmers

On the 16th of August, 2015, 15 parents from Law Primary swam from the Bass Rock back to North Berwick, to raise money for Project Play. They started training in the January of that year and were helped by the RNLI, and local people who gave their time in training, as medics on the day, as support from boats and kayaks and many more supported and encouraged along the way. The team raised over £8000 for Project Play, with £800 given to the RNLI.

The children have been consulted and based on their feedback, we have begun making some improvements, for example, 4 new picnic tables, 2 new A-frames and some new planters for the gardening team to use.  Negotiations are on-going!

Ann Reilly, one of the swimmers, made this amazing wee film to share our experience with others. We hope you have fun watching it!
