Frome Lions Sponsored Swim

THE Frome Lions will hold their annual sponsored swim on Sunday 23rd March at 5.00pm at the Frome Leisure Centre.

The Lions Club of Frome are holding this for the 29th time and are once again inviting entries for this annual event. This gives a good opportunity for any clubs and organisation to raise funds for themselves or for other charitable causes.

The event this year is again supported by Yeoman Asphalt: an Aggregate Industries Business. Their support will cover the costs of the event, which means that the whole of the funds raised through sponsorship can be used for good causes.

The proceeds will be shared (50/50) between a charity of your choice or your own club/school funds etc and Frome Lions Club Charitable Trust.

Each team consists of six volunteer swimmers of which one is nominated as captain, and then in relay they would try to swim as many lengths of the pool in 25 minutes as possible. The Lions wish to stress the event is strenuous and that all participants are competent swimmers, especially with childrens’ teams.

Upon registration of the team the time of the swim will be allocated, so if you want a early or later time please ask. All swimmers obtain their own sponsors,   with which forms provided by the Lions are to be written down.
