2017 Christmas Day Swim Swimmer Application

2017 SWIMMER APPLICATIONS FOR THE LOWESTOFT CHRISTMAS DAY SWIM ARE OPEN !!

This year the aim is simply 'BIGGER & BETTER'. This year will see the swim in its 40th Year and so we are aiming for our biggest amount of money in one year for the selected charities.

The swim has raised over £29,000 since SLT took on the organisation of the swim and last year alone the event raised over £10,000 for local charities and causes that was put to many great projects and services for local people.

This year the organisers are hoping that even more LOCAL HEROES get involved and brave the North Sea at this much loved and anticipated social calendar event. The Christmas Dip will take place on Monday 25 December 10am. Changing facilities and registration  for Registered Swimmers Only in will be at The Claremont Pier.

Minimum sponsorship £5.00 (100% of monies raised will go to beneficiaries).

Local organisations and charities that will benefit from your sponsorships this year are:

  • Ollies Heroes - Donation will be used to help send grants to help those families affected by cancer to assist with travel to and from hospital, help with living costs in hospital, memory trips, days outs or just a treat to help bring a little smile to the families and children going through the most awful time in their lives.
  • Brainwave Independence Group, - Donation will be used to help open a centre of community based activities and workshop for people with brain injuries and disabilities.
  • Taylor High Memorial Fund, - Donation will be used to help purchase new charity buckets, t shirts, a laminator and a display board, all vital to helping to raise funds to help people in the community.
  • Local Children's Home, Donation will be used to help take their young people away for the weekend currently living in a children’s home.
  • Topcats, - Donation will be used to help providing opportunities for young people with complex needs and disabilities by providing schools clubs, holiday clubs and tiny topcats regardless of disability.
  • Lowestoft and Oulton Broad Swimming Club, - Donation will be used to help to raise funds to replace equipment and subsidise travel for away galas giving children the experience of competing away from home.
  • Brian Gallagher Football Fund (SLT Organiser representative)
