2nd-4th: Thornbury Rotary Swimarathon 2018
Thornbury Leisure Centre
Following a hugely successful event in March 2017, Thornbury Rotary Club is now gearing up to hold the 2018 Swimarathon. This is a fun event which, each year, enables hundreds of people of all ages and abilities, to raise funds for charity.
We’re delighted to announce that, from the proceeds of Swimarathon 2018 we will be supporting two main charities: Cystic Fibrosis Trust (www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk) and Jigsaw Thornbury (www.jigsawthornbury.org.uk) as well as other good causes/charities and local initiatives.
Donations by business sponsors more than cover 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".
In 2017 our community raised over £21,000. To create an even bigger event for 2018, we are looking for even more local groups and organisations to form sponsored teams of 6 people swimming lengths in relay.
Entering a team is free and we will be pleased to hear from anyone interested in forming a team.
Details for this year’s event, including information on how you can become involved is available at the website below or by emailing the organiser, Stuart Hill.
