In March 2023 we held our 'Swim the Channel.... well, kind of' event. The challenge involved swimming the 21 miles distance to cross the English Channel over the course of 5 weeks (33km in 33 days).

Our participants had 33 days to complete the distance in any way they wished; either in their local swimming pool or in open water.

Although we only had there swimmers take part, they managed to raise a fantastic £665 between them. Kellie-Marie's son Alfred (pictured below left and centre), joined her for the last few lengths of the pool as she completed the challenge. Pictured below right is CLEFT Trustee, Tracy Morris, who is now also taking part in this September's Swim Serpentine event.
