Headline Photo Swimarathon 2015
Our annual Swimarathon, for 20 years the Club's major fund-raiser, will again be taking place at the Thornbury Leisure Centre on Friday February 27th, Saturday February 28th and Sunday March 1st.
Funds are raised by sponsored teams of 6 or more people swimming lengths in relay. Each year we hope to raise at least £12,000 (our annual average) for the benefit of two main charitable causes and to support Rotary's general local, national and international projects.
We are very grateful for the individual swimmers and teams who unfailing support this event, and also to our local sponsors and advertisers whose financial support defrays all our expenses, ensuring that every penny raised by our swimmers is used for the benefit of "good causes"
Principal beneficiaries are Bristol and South Gloucestershire Young Carers, which provides support advice and companionship for young people who care for family member because of disability, illnes or substance abuse, and the European Cleft Organisation a start-up national charity helping fellow professionals in former Eastern Block countries deal with problems associated with treatable cleft palates and hare lips. For more details, see the charities' websites.
