Moser’s Hall Cross-Channel Challenge for Alder Hey Children's Hospital

Tuesday 12 March 2019

Well done to everyone in Moser’s Hall, who collectively swam the distance from England to France and then rowed back home to raise funds for the Alder Hey Hospital Children’s Charity.

Their Cross-Channel Challenge took place on Sunday 10th March and began with all the girls swimming 34 kilometres (21 miles) in a team relay: a total of 1,320 lengths of the Shrewsbury School swimming pool.

As soon as they reached land in France (virtually at least), a smaller group took over to row back to England. They had originally planned to do this on the River Severn, but high-water levels meant that they were forced indoors instead. Undaunted, the team rowed a total of two and a half hours on an ergo.

Moser's Hall's combined efforts have raised more than £1,700 for Alder Hey Hospital – a superb effort. Their online fundraising page is still open and they would be very grateful for all donations:
