Sea Swim 2017

This Year's Swim

Click the date of the post or the comment icon at the bottom to view all photos

Set up 33 years ago for the dual purposes of having some festive fun and raising funds for local charities, this annual event has to date raised Euro 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 2017:

Wicklow Hospice
WH Five Loaves
The Order of Malta
Bray Lions Club Senior Citzens' / Carers' Fund

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

If you're up for a challenge or just looking for a sudden sharp shock to blow away the night before cobwebs
