Enter our SWIMATHON and raise funds for your favourite charity, cause or organisation.
Our Charity SWIMATHON gives a team of swimmers the opportunity to collect sponsorship for an organisation, cause or charity of their choice. Team members can be friends, school or work colleagues, family members, in fact any group with a shared aim. We organise and run the event and it's totally free to enter.
Our SWIMATHON is not a marathon or a race. It's a FUN EVENT for swimmers of all ages and abilities to take part.
No-one will be asked to complete a certain distance or to swim at a certain speed, team members just swim in relay for 55 minutes. All swimmers will be given a medal and a certificate to show how many lengths they completed.
Above all, what we ask is that each individual team member collects as much sponsorship as possible on themselves. We will give a cash voucher to the 3 swimmers with the highest individual sponsorship.
Ideally your team should have 4 to 8 members, people who are not only prepared to swim but also willing to collect sponsorship on themselves. Give your team a name, decide who will be the team captain, and select the charity or organisation you want to raise money for. We suggest that each team member endeavours to collect at least £50 sponsorship on themselves. Obviously, the more the better!

Rotary’s second major donation, of £208,000, was handed over on 7th July 2021 when local Rotarians visited the Great Western Hospital to view the build progress of the nearly completed radiotherapy unit.more
We went to the races in March. It was a meeting with 10 races, 8 riders in each. It wasn’t at Epsom, or Haydock Park, or just up the M4 at Newbury. It was, of all places, in Wanborough Village Hall.more
