Wisbech Swimming Club’s team captain Robson Pack took on the 10km Great East Anglian Run to raise more than £560 for his club.

The St Clements High School Year 10 student finished 355th, completing the run in 44 minutes 16 seconds.

As well as being a keen school sportsman, Robson swims up to four times a week and plays football for East Lynn Youth.

Pack said: “I hope to see the club buy new kit and run a motivational workshop for members, perhaps with a current Olympic swimmer.”
