Sea Swim 2016

33rd Annual Swim





Set up 32 years ago for the dual purposes of having some festive fun and raising funds for local charities, this annual event has to date raised €313,488 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 2016:


• Marino Community Special School
• Lincara Daycare Centre
• Open Door Daycare Centre
• Bray Lions' Carers' Fund


Remember no admin costs are incurred, the entire fundraising proceeds will go directly to these local charities. Bray Lions Club Members pay all costs of running the Swim.
