Save the 28th September 2024 in your diaries for one of our favourite events in the calendar

Open Water Charity Swim

We have run The Lou Parker Open Water Charity Swim for the past 11 years in memory of our good friend and fellow open water swimmer Lou Parker. Lou sadly passed away in 2010 from Melanoma and so as always we are organising this swim to raise awareness of this terrible disease to our amazing swimmers and help raise funds for a very special charity.

We are also remembering Dede Singh our friend and open water swimmer who sadly passed away last year. Dede loved the open water so please help us to remember him and what he loved doing Saturday mornings.

Swim Day

A 4k course is available to swim as an individual or as a relay. This is a relaxed event so you can swim as much or as little as you want. Please note there is NO official timing available.
Please email Keeley if you are planning on joining us.

SFT will provide a breakfast BBQ after the last person has finished.
