''First Strokes would like to thank everyone who took part in our Survival Week from 9th November to the 15th November. The children had fun swimming in their pyjama's during the week. The BBC Children in Need mascot 'Pudsey Bear' visited our Stanway, Colchester pool on the Thursday afternoon. Some pictures are available on our Facebook site.
We managed to raise £2,000 for Children in Need, we know this will go far. Thank you once again and we look forward to raising even more money next year. If you would like to donate further or you did not get the change to donate, you can still drop off a donation in one of our centres.''
