2016 VERULAM POSTAL SWIM – SUNDAY 7th February 2016

Once again Verulam ASC is taking part in the British Long Distance Postal Swim. It’s a chance to swim as far as possible in one hour and raise some money for charity. This will take place at Westminster Lodge during our normal training session.

Please be on poolside at 5:00pm. The cost of the event is £4.00.

We need to know numbers in advance, so swimmers should put their name and age (as of 01/01/2016) on an envelope with the entry fee inside and give it to your coach by Sunday 31st January.

PLEASE NOTE there will be no other swimming in the main pool but all LEARN TO SWIM lessons will carry on at their normal time in the small pool. We need parent volunteers to count the lengths swum – so if you can help, please also put your name on the envelope. If you are unable to take part on the 7th, there will be space on Friday 12th for a limited number of swimmers.

In the last few years our swimmers have raised in excess of £3,000 for charity. This year we would like to support the Anthony Nolan Charity- an organisation saving the lives of people with blood cancer. For more information go to http://www.anthonynolan.org/. If you would like to help raise money for this worthy course, please either return sponsorship money poolside after the event or donations can be made direct via the Justgiving page .
