Swim in aid of kids’ charity in November

Charity for Kids and Sean’s Swim School would like to invite swimmers of all ages and abilities to take on the challenge of swimming the distance of the English Channel.

Organisers are looking for four teams that are prepared to swim the 21-mile distance .

However rather than having to get in the cold sea, Battle Abbey School has kindly donated the use of its 25-metre indoor swimming pool.

The challenge, which starts from 7am on Sunday, November 2, will see each team swim a total of 33,600 metres (21 miles). This can be divided between the team in whatever order they wish, all that matters is each team completes the distance.

The swim needs to be completed in an eight-hour timeframe.

To make sure the swim is completed within this time there will be two swimmers from each team in their dedicated lane at any one time.

The cost to take part in this event is £150 per team (no maximum amount of swimmers). All funds will go to Charity for Kids.

To enter your team contact Paul Harris on 07794 435835, email paul.harris@charityforkids.co.uk or ring Sean Collins on 01424 814725.
