GIANTS kit man Mark Weavill has said a big `thank you' to all those who supported him at his recent sponsored swim.
All of the cash has now been collected after completing 90 lengths of the Galpharm Stadium pool, with several organisations having profited.
Among those to benefit are St James Hopsital in Leeds, St Lukes Hospital and the Barton Unit, which help with amputation and stroke rehabilitation patients. They picked up £600 each.
And there was also a cheque for £1,700 for the Giants Squadbuilder fund
Mark, who is still awaiting a kidney transplant and has had both lower legs amputated, is considering doing another swim next season to raise more money for charity.
"I would like to say thanks to all the people who have helped me from the very bottom of my heart," said Mark.
"I had to put in a lot of effort to raise this cash, but it's all worth it when you hand it over to the various organisations.
"I'm already thinking of doing something similar next season.
"It's always difficult to single out any individuals or groups for special praise, but I do feel I should give a mention to Outwear for supplying my specially adapted swim suit and all those who gave sponsorship, including Ken Davy, as well as those who threw money into the buckets."
