Ready to start fundraising?

Swimming events are a great way for the whole family to fundraise together!

Take part in an organised event or do your own thing - you could hit the local pool or have a go at open water swimming.

Whether you're a seasoned swimmer, or you're just starting out... a sponsored swim is a great way to raise money for a cause you care about.
