New Years Day Swim Smashed!

New Years Day Swim Smashed!

02 January 2018

On New Years Day '18 over two hundred super-special Uswimmers launched themselves into Dock 9, Salford Quays for our annual charity Swim.  It's one of the most invigorating, madcap and brilliant ways ever to welcome in a New Year. 5 degrees of fun!

The brill news is that we raised £4,200 via entries and a raffle for 'Graces Place' 'Forgetmenot' Childrens Hospice with much needed food donations winging their way to the Farnworth and Kearsley foodbank.

Big thanks to our hat sponsor - The marvellous Morson Group - raffle donors Dryrobe, Marco Pierre, Outdoor Swimmer, Zone3, The Botanist, The Beauty Guru and Penelope's kitchen. 

An even bigger thanks to our fantastic 'Mitchell boys' water safety team - Keith, Kenny, Luke, Owen and our terrific Uswim team on the day - Karen, Michael, Ian, Debbie who all gave up their time voluntarily and made it happen. Stars :)
