Raising money for Bowel Cancer UK and St. Wilfrid’s Hospice (Chichester)


The Big Bathe was the initiative of Victoria Hulme-Hall, who sadly passed away in September 2022.

The aim is for our 180 swimmers to raise as much sponsorship and awareness as we can as one team.

Victoria was diagnosed with bowel cancer when she was only 32 years old and when she found out her cancer was terminal, she fought with all her strength to raise money and awareness so that other people could be spared and live better and happier lives.

The inaugural Big Bathe event took place in July 2022 and raised more than £68,000. While Victoria sadly passed away in September 2022 at St Wilfrid's Hospice, Bosham, her family and friends are organising another Big Bathe in her honour. Please join us in celebrating Victoria's life and to help raise money and awareness for causes close to her heart.

This year we have decided to support both Bowel Cancer UK and St Wilfrid's Hospice, Bosham. When donating here on Just Giving you will need to select one of these causes, and we will endeavour to ensure both charities receive an equal portion of all donations.

This will be a joyous day - whether you are a swimmer, in the bowel cancer community or your loved ones have been supported by the dedicated care at St Wilfrid's hospice, come down to the Big Bathe 2023 to show your support!

More details about the event can be found here including registration to swim:
