This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Christmas Swim moves online. During the month of December, we would like you to register in the usual way and then send us a photo or video of you doing your swim. It can be in the sea, paddling pool, the bath, as long as it involves at least partial immersion in water.

The cost of registration is £5. Please consider raising some sponsorship money if you can. There will be a small prize and medal for the most money raised, the best fancy dress and for the most imaginative swim. All proceeds will go to The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through the toughest times they may have faced. Teenage Cancer Trust are the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need. 

SAFETY. Please observe all current government COVID rules and guidelines. Please ensure that your swim is safe and any children are supervised.

Your “swim” can take place in any location, it doesn’t have to be Southwold.

It must involve at least partial immersion in water.

It can be in the sea, bath, paddling pool, washing-up bowl. Use your imagination.
