Amazing £37k raised!

What can we say? We are so very chuffed to report that the 38th Swimarathon in January 2023 raised the incredible total of just over £37k including gift aid. I was secretly hoping to raise £38k at the 38th Swimarathon, but £37k is still absolutely brilliant, especially in these very tough times. People continue to be so very generous. 50% of all funds raised by each team are donated back to their favourite good cause. The other 50% goes into our Lions funds, ready to support & help local needy people.

It's a virtuous circle, with up to 120 teams of 8 swimmers taking part; all ages from 4 to 84, of all ages & abilities; working as teams, swimming in relay for 50 minutes, starting promptly on each hour from 7am through to 7pm; having great fun & menawhile raising huge funds for charity. How good is that?

The cups are awarded this year as follows -

Lane 4 Trophy for Senior team swimming the most laps

MASC Marlins Basking Sharks – 88 laps

Maidenhead Lions Centennial Cup for Junior team (under 12’s) swimming most laps

Tie between 2 MASC Marlins teams – Sticklebacks & Tuna – 62 laps each

President's Cup for team most epitomising the spirit and ethos of the event

Cox Green School

Ipsen Trophy for team raising the most sponsorship money
