The Big Swim Cornwall has raised a whopping £13,965 for charity! The money will go towards three fantastic charities: the Little Harbour Children’s Hospice, Mount Edgcumbe Hospice and The National Lobster Hatchery.
Smaller donations will be made to local organisations as a token of appreciation for the work carried out in the community. They include the Port Isaac RNLI, The National Trust, Tintagel Life Saving Club, Port Isaac Rowing Club and HM Coastguard, Port Isaac.
Congratulations to all those who took part, and well done for braving the stretch of water between Port Gaverne and Port Isaac! A special mention must of course go to those who organised the event and made it such a great success.
The Big Swim Cornwall will be back in August next year so there’s plenty of time to get some training in. If you prefer terra firma, why not sign up for the Big Run Cornwall to be held on 14 June 2014? The course follows the entire length of the Camel Trail – all 17 miles! More details coming soon.
