Swimathon 2022

Sat, Mar 26th 2022 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our Charity Swimming Event


Well, as we knew we would, we’ve bounced back and are delighted to ask you to join us and take part in our CELEBRATORY SWIMATHON on SATURDAY 26TH MARCH 2022 by forming a team, or teams and enjoying all the fun and laughter of the day.

Teams from Primary and Secondary Schools, Guides, Brownies, Scouts, Cubs, Football, Youth and other groups, organisations, families etc. from Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea, Backwell, Avonmouth and surrounding areas take part each year. 

Teams of 6 swim in a relay at their own pace (it is definitely not a race) for 35 minutes. 

Age is no barrier but all entrants must be able to complete a length of the 25 m. pool competently. They should also be aware that during their session they will be starting some of their lengths in the water at the deep end of the pool. 

We have special arrangements in place for weaker or non-swimmers but need advance notice of anyone in this category.

THE PURPOSE OF THE EVENT IS THAT THROUGH SPONSORSHIP ALL SWIMMERS RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE.

All proceeds in aid of : The Grand Appeal (Bristol Children's Hospital Charity)

Alzheimer's Research UK : School's Projects & other local groups and Rotary Charities

To take part please download and complete the Entry Form using the link below and return it to me as soon as possible.

Come and have fun while raising money for our charities and your schools and groups

Yours sincerely
