The Lou Parker and Dede Singh Open Water Charity Swim.
Save the 24th September 2022 in your diaries for one of our favourite events in the calendar.
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 in 2021. Dede loved the open water so please help us to remember him and what he loved doing Saturday mornings.
All proceeds of this swim will be donated to the Melanoma Fund a national charity that campaigns tirelessly to ensure as many people understand the risks of excessive sun exposure as possible, especially sunburn, which can triple the chances of melanoma. For further information in the great work they do visit www.melanoma-fund.co.uk. The event is always very popular. Please come along and help us celebrate the life of our friend, and help us do something positive against this most dangerous form of skin cancer, to those most at risk.
