Swim for St Leonard's

We are challenging people to swim the length of the English Channel, all in the comfort of their local swimming pool! The English Channel is 21 miles from Dover to Calais, the equivalent to 1344 lengths in a standard-sized pool.

We are challenging people to complete this in 12 weeks, which is an average of 112 lengths per week, or alternatively set your own pace and your own challenge!

Swimming is low impact and so is perfect for people of all abilities and all ages.

Anita Ellam completed her challenge on Friday 24th March, 6 weeks after her challenge began. She has raised £1110 to date - a fantastic achievement! You can read more about her story and gain some inspiration here:
