Sentinel Leisure Trust prides itself on being a local charitable trust with charitable outcomes and objectives. Not only do we provide sport and leisure services across the district of Waveney and Great Yarmouth, we re-invest back into sport and leisure to continually improve the lives and opportunities of local residents and visitors to the area.
Back in 2014, the Lowestoft Christmas Day Swim was cancelled due to the previous organisers not being able to continue the great work they have done years before. A management group was set up of local organisations, spearheaded but Sentinel Leisure Trust and the Christmas Day Swim was ressurected and continues to this day.
The swim aims to raise much needed funds for LOCAL ORGANISATIONS/CHARITIES who provide great work to those in need throughout the year and deserve the recognition they sometimes do not recieve. In total, since SLT took over the running of the swim, it has raised over £25,000 for local groups who serve in and around Lowestoft.
Last year alone we raised £10,000 !!!!!!
