Our Sponsored Swim for Charity!

Along with running a busy Swim School Angela also likes to get involved in the Charity sector! She is an active member of the Lady Taverner’s Group who work closely with The Lord’s Taverner’s Charity ‘Giving young people a sporting chance’.

As part of their latest campaign to raise £250,000 for ‘The Play Space Appeal’ The President of the Lady Taverner’s Angela Rippon, launched the Play Spaces Appeal by announcing the charity’s ambitious £250,000 fundraising target to help young people with disabilities enjoy their right to play. Funds raised will equip special educational needs schools across the UK with vital facilities for children with a wide range of physical and learning disabilities.


Each area of Angela’s Swim School held a sponsored swim and encouraged family and friends to donate. We encouraged children who swam miles and also those who are still in armbands. One of our swimmers from the Dartford area donated an incredible £350!

A message from Angela “A big thanks to all who has been involved in making our sponsored swim a huge success!”
