Demelza’s Snowflake Swim returns to Charlton Lido on Sunday 29th of January. Last year’s event saw 80 swimmers join in, and raised over £20,000 for Demelza (this writer was one of those swimmers, and enjoyed the event very much!).
More from the organisers:
Brave the outside waters of Charlton Lido in the depths of winter and swim your choice of distance from 100m – 2km.
2016 saw 80 brave swimmers plunge into the water and raise over £20,000 for Demelza – we want 2017 to be even bigger and better!
There is no minimum sponsorship amount for this event BUT we encourage you to try and raise £50 – this could pay for a morning session in our own hydrotherapy pool for our children and their families!
All swimmers receive a hot drink after the swim along with an exclusive Demelza swimming cap and medal to celebrate your achievement.
Spectators are welcome to come along free of charge to cheer you on – the more the merrier! Refreshments will be available from the café.
Prize for the top fundraiser will be awarded after the event, spot prizes will be awarded on the day for Best Fancy Dress.
