HAVING made a big splash at the Rotary Club of Biggleswade swimathon, local businessman Dave Savage was honoured recently when he was presented with a certificate to mark his efforts.
Mr Savage, who runs an electrical contracting company Savage and Sons on the Stratton Business Park in Biggleswade, raised £200 for local charities at the swimathon to earn himself the best corporate fundraiser certificate from Rotary Club president Maurice Jones.
Said Mr Savage: "The swimathon is an ideal event for getting fit, having some fun - we called our team Sav's Sploshers - and building a good team atmosphere at work."
Mr Savage is now issuing a challenge to local companies asking them whether they are fit enough to raise more money than his team.
