Chailey Heritage Foundation are thrilled and delighted to have been chosen as Haywards Heath Lions Charity of the Year and to benefit from this special fundraising event.
Each year the Haywards Heath Lions hold this amazing swimming event at the Dolphin Centre in Haywards Heath on Good Friday.
They recruit teams from the local community, clubs, companies and associations. Over the course of the day, from 8am to 6pm, up to 60 teams take part. Each hour, six teams (each of six participants) at a time, take part in a competition to see how many lengths they can swim in 55 minutes.
Each team is encouraged to fundraise prior to and following this event. The teams can choose to nominate their own charity to receive 50% of the proceeds with 50% being donated to the Lions Chosen Charity.
Chailey Heritage Foundation will be dedicating all the funds raised by this event to our new DREAM Centre Appeal.
Update - January 2017: Registration is now open. Visit the Haywards Heath Lions Swimarathon website here for all the information and to enter a team.
VOLUNTEERS - we will also need volunteers to 'man' our display stand ,at the event, throughout the day. If you can help, please contact Joan Martin via firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 01825 724444 ext 718.
