Sea Swim 2015


32nd Annual Swim







This Year's Swim

* This year's Sea Swim raised €8,684 *
Cheques were presented in The Strand Hotel in March 2015
Bray Stroke Club, Caring for Carers, Bray Poor Relief Fund,
Bray Branch of Enable Ireland, Bray Lions' Club Senior Citizens’ Holiday


Set up 31 years ago for the dual purposes of having some festive fun and raising funds for local charities, this annual event has to date raised €304,804 (€10,320 in 2014) for a very long list of worthy local causes.

Bray Lions Club is seeking your help to spread the word verbally, and by Facebook and Twitter !


With many of the swimmers turning out in fancy dress, this is always a very enjoyable and colourful event. Many people and charities are experiencing financial hardship at present and for this reason we have chosen as our charities for 2015:

• Bray Stroke Club
• Caring for Carers
• Bray Poor Relief Fund
• Bray Branch of Enable Ireland
• Bray Lions' Senior Citizens’ Holiday.


Remember no admin is incurred, the entire fundraising proceeds will go directly to these local charities.
