The pool is sectioned into lanes to suit swimmers ranging from the very young and inexperienced to the much more experienced swimmers in the fast lanes. It is a really good way to do something good for your own heart and to raise urgently needed funds for pioneering research, BHF nurses and patient care, as well as life-saving equipment in your local community.
Brenda Clabburn, fundraising volunteer manager for the British Heart Foundation said: “Swimming is an excellent way to keep hearts healthy and can be enjoyed by all age groups. We have swimmers who have supported us for many years but we would also welcome more individuals or teams from local swimming clubs, schools and companies taking part this year. A greater emphasis is being placed on health generally, so we hope the idea of swimming for a good cause will encourage people to take time out to enjoy a swim and increase their fitness.”
BHF shields awarded to the winners of the team relay races, groups raising the most sponsorship money and trophies and prizes for top individual fundraisers, both adult and 'under 18' sections. Refreshments and BHF medals for all swimmers.
