Registered Charity 1125170
The Big Swim
Every year, SDSG volunteers need to raise funds to help pay for the charity's annual insurance, affiliation, administration, equipment, pool hire and lifeguard costs. Although, SDSG membership and entry fees help, there is still a large shortfall and volunteers are working hard behind the scenes throughout the year to raise the money, may that be through external funding bids, grants, fundraising events or securing services/equipment free of charge.
In 2018, the charity's total income was £10,973.49 and only £1,485.50 came from fees due from its service users.
This year, SDSG is organising a sponsored swim event to bring together supporters of SDSG, may they be: family, friends or members of the community, to help raise much needed funds, to ensure anyone with a disability or medical condition can stay active through swimming.
Dont worry, if you struggle swimming numerous lengths in a row, why not swim as part of a relay?
To keep costs down (unless we are able to secure external funding) swimmers will be offered a lane during one (or more) of our main fortnightly swim sessions in October.
