How Your Support Helps

Your registration fee covers the cost of hosting the event. It is your sponsorship money makes a difference to the individuals and families we support and care for. We ask for a minimum sponsorship of £40 for the 1k Challenge or £50 for the 2k Challenge.

Money raised from this sponsored swim will help fund our Physiotherapy service, who help with mobility difficulties and breathlessness in our Day Hospice. We are hoping to raise £13,000 from The Big Splash and your fundraising will make a difference.

We have another Big Splash at Northfield Leisure Centre on Sunday 2nd February, click here for more information.
