Fantastic news! Haywards Heath Lions Club has chosen Headway East Sussex as its nominated charity for its 2019 Swimarathon which will take place on Good Friday – 19th April 2019 at The Dolphin Leisure Centre in Haywards Heath, RH16 1LY.

Make Headway East Sussex your good cause

We need teams of 6 swimmers of any age to swim in a 55-minute-long relay to raise money for us or a good cause of their own. The first teams will start at 8am and the final teams at 6pm.

The sponsorship money raised by each team will be paid to Haywards Heath Lions Club, who will then distribute it to the charities and good causes. Half of each team’s sponsorship is donated to that team’s chosen charity or good cause, and half to the Lions’ chosen good cause (Headway East Sussex).

Why should I take part?

We need to raise £100,000 per annum to provide our services and support to the brain injury community.

Last year, 65 teams swam and raised a total of £20,744. A cheque for £15,000 was presented to the nominated charity: Time 4 Children.

We need all of our Headway East Sussex supporters to help us equal or even beat this fantastic achievement!
The more teams that enter the more chance we have of raising a significant amount of money.

Remember the key objective is to raise as much money as possible while having fun!
