Make a roaring splash at the Lions Fun Swim !
What better way for a family to help their favourite charity than by splashing about in a pool..!
The Dorchester & District Lions family-inclusive Fun Swim of 2020 will held on the weekend of 14th & 15th March, and the club are now inviting adults and children to sign up and take part.
The two day event takes place on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning at the 1610 Sports Centre in Coburg Road, Dorchester.
In addition to the popular timed 55 minute team relays in the main pool, the Fun Swim is offering a host of other fun activities and small pool challenges for children and adults of all ages and abilities. The infamous Inflatable Challenge is back in the main pool, there are sessions of Aquafit, Kid's Swim and Aqua Glide challenges together with the ever-popular Aquaboats. This year the Fun Swim includes a new event in the main pool, the Aqua Board Challenge - how long can you stay on board ?
A spokesman for Dorchester Lions added:
“The Lions Fun Swim is an event for the whole family, all ages and all abilities. It gives everyone a chance to 'make a splash' and raise money for their favourite cause or charity and have fun at the same time!
For 2020, a term normally associated with 'perfect vision', Dorchester Lions decided it would be appropriate to nominate the blind and visually impaired as main beneficiaries of the Fun Swim ..we want to hear from individuals, groups or organisations providing this help in our community..''
