COSC will be doing a "Sponsored Swim Team Relay Channel Swim" in Feb. 20, 2010 at Temple Cowley Swimming Pool.

The Charities

Funds raised will go to support two charities: Clowns in the Sky and The Lymphoma Association.
If you'd like to donate you can do this via the following internet sites:
To collect sponsorship, all you need to do is email these links to friends and families explaining what we're doing, and asking them to sponsor our swim on the Just Giving web site.  Instructions are given on the site for how to donate.  We're using Just Giving to process sponsorship because it's entirely secure, and automatically reclaims Gift Aid for our chosen charities, meaning money raised goes further.

The Event

Teams of up to six swimmers will aim to swim the equivalent distance of the Channel (22.5 miles) between them in four hours

We hope to have as many teams competing as possible. We can accept non-COSC members in relay teams, as long as all swimmers attending raise sponsorship amounts.

There will be a prizes for:
•    The Team raising the most sponsorship
•    The fastest Team
•     The Team with the most original attire

We will be engaging local Radio and Press coverage, are keen for local corporate teams to join in.

If you would like to join in, but don't have a team to join (or a team to join you), then register your details and we'll try and put you in a team.
