23rd June 2018 – Great East Swim

Nearby Alton Water are holding their 11th Great East Swim.

Join hundreds of swimmers as they take on the chill of the lake.  Once your entry fee is paid you are free to raise money for any charity you like and we’d love you to support adults with learning disabilities.

Our Fundraising Trio are taking on the challenge to raise funds for Acorn Village.

Jess & Sadie have never been open water swimming before, Jess is terrified of what might lie beneath the water so it’s a huge challenge for her.

They are training every week and some donations would really help keep their motivation up.

Sponsor them here!
