The 56th Porthcawl Christmas Morning Swim is going VIRTUAL!
-
2020 has been an unusual year to say the least, with lots of event being cancelled - but that isn't going to stop one of Porthcawl's finest traditions.
-
The pandemic has meant that Wales Air Ambulance will see a significant decrease in donations - but we are here to help!
-
Current restrictions mean that there cannot be a mass swim at Sandy Bay this year, but with your help we want to make this year's virtual challenge unforgettable for all the right reasons.
-
This December, we invite you to make a 'Splash for Cash' in aid of Wales Air Ambulance and other local organisations. We're asking you to think of exciting and imaginative ways to complete your own Virtual Christmas Swim, any time between December 1st and December 25th all with the aim of raising money and making a 'Splash for Cash' for this years headline charity - Wales Air Ambulance.
-
Traditionally every year we need a theme, and what better theme than ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ in recognition of the hard work of all our key workers, whilst looking forward to the future.

Do you want to make a Splash for Cash? This is what you need to do:

 

Decide what your 'Splash for Cash' challenge is going to be. Here are a couple of ideas: 

  • Wear your Ruby Slippers making a  ‘splashforcash’ with super soakers or a garden hose.
  • Dress in rainbow colours and ‘SplashForCash’ while dancing in a paddling pool in your garden.
  • Visit your local leisure centre (depending on restrictions) and swim 7 lengths to represent each colour of the rainbow.
  • Dip your toes in the sea whilst wearing one of the colours of the rainbow (depending on restrictions).

Raise money for our headline charity! There are two options, choose to make a one of donation once you have completed your challenge, or set up a fundraising page and ask your family and friends to sponsor your 'Splash for Cash!
