FAQs
What if I am unsure what my swimming capability is and I want to take part? To take part you needn’t be able to swim any distance but must be confident in the water. Children must be over 8 and have their caregiver’s permission. If at all concerned, just ask a lifeguard to keep a watch.

If you have any medical concerns regarding your ability to take part in this initiative safely, please check with your family doctor.

What do I do with my sponsorship money if I have it all collected before event day?
(e.g. just pledges)
Once you have your full total, return it to the place where you first registered for it to be recorded. Alternatively, you can bring it with you on the day.

What will happen to all the money raised?
