Age UK Buckinghamshires Sponsored Swim needs YOU!

Do you love swimming and want to help raise funds for Age UK Buckinghamshire? Then this event is for you! On the 1st and 2nd of October and with the help of Everyone Active, we are holding a sponsored swim and want YOU to be involved!

If you cannot swim but still want to be involved, then please DONATE on this page to support our staff swimmers!

We are putting forward our own team of staff (including our CEO Bernadette Ashcroft) to take part in this swimathon and raise vital funds to support older people in Buckinghamshire. If you cannot be involved on the day, then a great way to support us is by donating on this JustGiving page.

Where: 1st October 2019 at Aqua Vale in Aylesbury (Park St, Aylesbury HP20 1DX) in their Glass house pool from 7pm to 9pm.

2nd October 2019 at Swan Pool in Buckingham (London Rd, Buckingham MK18 1AE) - from 12pm to 4pm.

What: Set yourself a target and join us! We will send you a fundraising pack and can help you set up a JustGiving account to raise funds for your individual swim.

Sign up: Email age@ageukbucks.org.uk with the subject Sponsored Swimathon to sign up or receive more details.

You can also call 01296 431911 to register your interest and a member of staff will be in touch.

Pool details: Swan pool is 25m a length so 64 lengths for a mile swim. Aqua Vales Glass house pool is 20m a length so there are 80 lengths for a mile swim.

Incentive: Not only will you be having fun and helping us raise funds but Everyone Active are also providing the incentive that all swimmers will receive a free online & face to face induction in the gym worth £20 (must be booked in the month of October) AND an offer swimmers (through Age UK Buckinghamshire) a 1 month membership for unlimited use of the pool, gym and classes (1st to 31st October) for just £15!
