Four Whittlesey schools received a cash boost from The Quinion Trust, a charity in memory of Rev Gordon Quinion to promote swimming lessons for primary school children.
At a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Whittlesey, local primary schools all received payments from the Quinion Trust, which was set up in memory of the rotarian, councillor and school governor.
Steve Hodson, of the club, said: “His passion was swimming and he is reported to be the first in the Whittlesey outdoor pool when it opened.”
The trust has now been dissolved and the money distributed between the schools.
In a vote of thanks Rob Litten, executive headteacher at Park Lane Primary School and Nursery, said: “It was opportune that funds were in place as we have just been told that swimming lessons had to be funded by each school.
