Thames Hospice is calling on its supporters to take the plunge and sign up to take on the charity’s brand new Open Water Swim Challenge.

In partnership with Bray Lake Watersports and kindly sponsored by The Shanly Foundation, this exciting new event takes place on:

Sunday 2 July 2023 at Thames Hospice, in Bray Lake.

Thames Hospice’s Head of Community and Events, Claire Redrup, says: “We are so excited to launch our first ever Open Water Swim Challenge this summer. It means so much to us, our community and supporters that this event will be taking place at the Hospice, in Bray Lake."

The charity’s Open Water Swim Challenge offers a range of distances from 500m to 10km, which participants can swim individually or part of a team* (*5km and 10km distances).

Claire adds: “Our event is open to everyone aged 18 and over, of all abilities, whether you’re a seasoned swimmer and can manage long distances, or you have only swum in a pool but always fancied dipping into open water swimming.

“Not only will you be swimming in stunning surroundings to raise vital funds for the Hospice, but you’ll also be engaging in an activity that has so many incredible health and wellbeing benefits.”

With registration fees starting from £30 per person, all participants will receive a swim hat, medal and free hot drink on the day. Exclusive branded hoodies are also available to purchase for just £35.

Every penny raised helps to ensure Thames Hospice continues to care for patients and their loved ones with the utmost compassion, dignity and respect.
