It’s that time of year again! We are looking for swimmers of all abilities and ages to participate at our charity swimathon taking place at Hampton Open Air Pool on 7th October.
The challenge is: Find out how far you can swim down the River Thames (in your local pool)?
You can find out how far you can swim by pinpointing it on a large map of the River Thames afterwards. Swim from Teddington to Twickenham to find out you have swam 1.5 miles or 4 miles which is from Kingston to Twickenham.
Swimmers will raise money for Crossway Pregnancy Crisis Centre and can opt to swim for one or two hours. Every penny raised will be put to good use to ensure people can find and receive help at a time when they are very vulnerable.
Barbecue and drinks will be available for all attendees
ENTRY FEES: £10 per adult / £5 per child
Fee includes: Free T-shirt, barbecue and drinks
