Lee and Maddie's century for charity

BIBICTwo six-year-olds have raised hundreds of pounds for charity after successfully swimming 100 laps of the rapids at Wells Leisure Centre.

Lee Harris and Maddie Dabinette, who were raising money for bibic, completed their century of laps in a little over an hour and a half.

Lee’s sister Natasha and Maddie’s brother Finley also got involved with the fundraiser activities by taking part in a sponsored cycle ride along the Collier’s Way cycle route. The quartet raised a combined total of more than £350.

bibic is a national charity which cares for children with conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome, developmental delay, traumatic and acquired brain injury and specific learning difficulties such as attention deficits hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Lee and Natasha’s father Paul said: “The help that bibic have given us and Maddie's family has been incredible.

“They have given us a real insight into the difficulties our children face in understanding and dealing with the world and, more importantly, they offer very practical help and advice to help our children develop to their full potential and help us as a family.”

Everyone at Avalon Leisure would like to congratulate Lee and Maddie on their fantastic achievement.
