LEISURE: Charity swimathon is back for 2020


Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is looking for teams of swimmers to make a splash and raise funds for the services they provide.

Founded in 1955, Diverse Abilities is the only charity that supports children and adults with profound physical and learning disabilities, and their families, in Dorset.

Poole Lions 42nd Swimathon is taking place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2020 at Everyone Active’s Dolphin Centre in Poole. They are looking for teams of up to six swimmers to swim in a relay for 55 minutes in a 25-metre pool. Facilities are also available for learner and younger swimmers, who can use the smaller 12.5-metre boom pool.

A registration fee of £20 will apply to each team and a non-swimming captain is required. All of the money raised the fundraising event will be donated to Diverse Abilities.
