Ours members are taking part in a sponsored swim - 45 miles in total between now and the end of March 2022. 1 mile = 61 lengths per member

by Rhondda Cold Knap Lifeguard Club in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, United Kingdom

Our amazing members range from age 7 years old upwards.  Each member will complete a 1 miles swim to get us to the 45 miles in total.  We are swimming the equivalent in miles from the Knap in Barry to the Rhondda from where the club originated nearly 60 years ago. In August 2022 we will be celebrating our 60th anniversary.  We are extremely proud of this achievement along with being awarded and MBE 'Queens award for Voluntary Services.  All money we raise will be donated to the club to purchase vital equipment to be able to continue the amazing training sessions we provide to our members.  The members train on surf lifesaving boards, nipper and rescue boards. These are costly items and need updating and maintaining.  All donations will be put towards the boards either to renew or repair.  We are a growing club with members wanting to join throughout the season.
