Swimathon 2019

Rotary Club of Macclesfield Castle  50 / 50 Charity Swimathon 

Sunday 17th March 2019 – Macclesfield Leisure Centre


A very big thank you to all of you who took part and for all of your efforts in the 2018 Swimathon which raised an enormous £6,000 for a number of charities in our community including Age UK Cheshire East, Just Drop in, Scout and guide groups, East Cheshire Hospice as well as other local Rotary charities.


o   Could you organise a team/s, take part and swim as a team of 4 - 6 people for 45 minutes? 

o   Can you identify a  project that you would like to support in your school with 50% of the sponsorship going to this project.

o   We are encouraging school groups, family and company teams to enter to raise sponsorship for both local charities and Rotary Charities on a 50/50 basis.

o   Rotary provide and cover the costs of the venue of some £800 and undertake all the management so this enables you and the Team to make the most of the day to maximise your sponsorship.


As so many of the teams enjoyed themselves last year, we already have some bookings, so we expect this event will prove to be as much fun and be as popular as ever for everyone. Do enter a team and come along and have a ‘Whale of a time’ !


Our success, however, comes from you, your team and your sponsors. Please urge all your swimmers to raise as much sponsorship as they can. If your sponsors, are taxpayers, please tick the Gift Aid box and make sure you add the house number and  post code. 


If you are swimming for your charity it is important to put their name on the entry form and charity registration number.  Please note one charity per team.  Why not challenge other groups to take part as well .  Apply on enclosed form or from our website now.


All the information and paperwork that you require is available now. Please let me have your entry form back as quickly as possible. Swim times will be confirmed by email at a later date. Please feel free to photocopy additional copies of the forms.


Rotary Charities

The Rotary Club of Macclesfield Castle supports many people and organisations from all walks of life. We receive requests for help from many sources, local, national and international, and each request is assessed on its own merit. We also need to be able to respond to urgent need. Rotary’s own Foundation Charity has a campaign to finally eradicate Polio in the world [it started back in 1982 and only Pakistan and Afghanistan have small endemic areas of Polio now]. We also contribute to supplying Life Boxes (costing some £250 each) for the many disasters around the world.
