Update new ‘Swim for Shine’ date 25th September 2021

These amazing 3 girls have overcome so many challenges over the last few months.  They first put their wetsuits on and very bravely got into the freezing cold lake at the beginning of June (and it was mighty cold!!).  They quickly built their endurance over the next few weeks ready for the Great East Swim in Suffolk  – which got cancelled at the last minute due to toxic algae (yes best avoided!).  They didn’t let that stop them – they carried on training most weeks preparing for the rescheduled Great East Swim in September.  Only to come across another stumbling block – it got cancelled again! (Yes the algae was back!).   Back to the drawing board …. what could they do ? …. How could they challenge themselves? …..

These amazing young ladies have bravely decided to do an open water NIGHT swim at Divers Cove in Godstone.  Not content to just settle for swimming in the open water during the day …. these 3 girls are going to swim round the former quarry at night!  They’ll have glow sticks to guide them as the sun sets on the lake at Divers Cove in Godstone this Saturday evening.
