Our annual Swimarathon has been Thornbury Rotary Club's major fund-raising event for over 20 years.
Funds are raised by sponsored teams of 6 or more people swimming lengths in relay at Thornbury Leisure Centre. We are very grateful to the individual swimmers and teams who unfailingly support this event and also to our local sponsors and advertisers for their donations. The money they give more than covers the cost of running the Swimarathon, ensuring that every penny raised by our swimmers, plus the balance from these donations, is used for the benefit of "good causes".
You can contact the organiser Stuart Hill by email or phone.
