  • The fundraising event takes place on Saturday in Benalmádena

A community fundraising event in aid of the Cudeca hospice in Benalmádena will take place at Cómpeta's municipal swimming pool this Saturday at 10am.

The swimming challenge will involve two teams; an Elite and a Challenge team, whose aim is to swim 354 lengths of Cómpeta's 25-metre pool.

The combined swim length of 17,696 metres is the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest or 8.5 times the height of La Maroma, Malaga province's highest peak.

The Challenge team is open to swimmers of all abilities and ages. 98-year-old Bobby and 13-year-old twins Katy and Sam have already signed up for the challenge. For further information contact Cindy Jones by phone (665 156 467) or by email (
