Swimming Relay Race - East Cheshire Hospice

Swimming Relay Race

Get your cossies on and take a plunge into this exciting and competitive challenge idea!

Why not host your own swimming relay competition, this could be between your mates or an event for the whole community to enjoy! Find yourself a swimming venue and organise a date and time for your challenge to take place. Create loads of promotional material and start raining in those sign ups. You could charge £5 per team of four and encourage each participant to raise funds for the East Cheshire Hospice, or have a collection bucket on the day.

Make sure that your participants can swim confidently have ensure you have plenty of lifeguards on duty.

How do I start fundraising?

The best way to collect sponsorship would be to take cash on the day of the event. We have plenty of collection buckets and pots you can use for your event, please see contact details below of how to get in touch with us.

It costs £7,500 to keep the Hospice running for 1 day, so every penny that you can raise is important. You may never know exactly how your support will help but you can be assured that the impact your support will have on local families who can benefit from the Hospice services at one of the most difficult and emotional times will be huge and ever so appreciated.
