After supporting swimming and aquatic organisations back in June 2020 with £50,000 of grants funding, we are pleased to announce that as of today, the Swimathon Foundation are launching a second Covid-19 Relief Fund.
Following the latest lockdown announcement on 4 January 2020, we know this has heightened the impact felt by the swimming and aquatics community, with all public swimming facilities closed and unavailable for use across the UK. As a response to this, the Swimathon Foundation felt it was important to again support impacted organisations. The Swimathon Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund 2.0 has been set up by the Swimathon Foundation, the charity that owns Swimathon, Open Water Swimathon, School Swimathon and Marathon Swims.
The Fund will offer a limited number of grants to support small organisations working in the swimming and aquatics community in the UK, so that after a very difficult 2020, they can continue to operate during and after these especially difficult times. Information and criteria for organisations wishing to apply can be found here.
If you are part of a small swimming or aquatics organisation, or know anyone that is, then please use or share the link above. The Swimathon Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund 2.0 may be able to provide financial support in these continued testing times.
